Cooperative agreements to USA and territories IHEs, nonprofit organizations, government and tribal agencies, and for-profits for projects addressing marine ecosystems and climate change. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to a full application and are advised that required registrations take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended for projects addressing hypoxia, harmful algal blooms, ocean acidification, climate change, ocean observing, modeling, data management, and marine protected area (MPA) management.

The purpose of this document is to solicit proposals to understand the combined impacts of multiple stressors on the function and health of marine ecosystems within the context of climate change. This information will be used to improve place-based management of marine protected areas and enable the proactive protection of these critical ecosystems under future climate scenarios. 

This Announcement solicits proposals focused on understanding how multiple stressors are currently impacting marine ecosystems, and how these impacts will change under future climate scenarios. Proposed projects may address all relevant stressors in their chosen region, but must include, at a minimum, harmful algal blooms (i.e., high biomass, fish- or shellfish-killing, and/or toxin-producing bloom events), deoxygenation (i.e., includes a range of states from any loss of oxygen to hypoxia and anoxia), increasing temperature, and ocean acidification. Chosen species/habitat assemblages must be of broad management interest (e.g., commercial, recreational, subsistence, keystone, foundational, cultural, and/or ecologically important species) and relevant to an MPA or MPA network in the waters under the jurisdiction of the U.S. (including U.S. territories and the Great Lakes). The inclusion of a National Marine Sanctuary is encouraged, but not required.

Requirements of research projects can be found on page 7 of the NOFO. See Attached Files, below.
