Description

The Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers is seeking technical support for watershed management and resilience plan for Fort Leonard Wood, MO. This opportunity is restricted to non-federal partners of the Great Rivers Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU). The government is looking for research and technical support for watershed management modeling and analyses for water quantity and quality, impacts to aquatic species, and effects of extreme rainfall events in the Fort Leonard Wood area. The primary tasks include watershed modeling, assessment of model output and management prioritization, and development of a Watershed Management Plan. The plan will include recommended preliminary designs and locations for future development of Low Impact Development (LID) features and Best Management Practices (BMPs) to protect imperiled aquatic species, reduce infrastructure maintenance costs, and support current and future land usages. The opportunity has a close date of August 12, 2024, and an award ceiling of $230,000. For more information, contact Stacy Thurman at stacy.d.thurman@usace.army.mil.

Scalable and Replicable Watershed Resilience Evaluation
Engineer Research and Development Center
The Engineer Research and Development Center is offering a federal grant opportunity titled "Scalable and Replicable Watershed Resilience Evaluation". This cooperative agreement aims to develop replicable processes, methods, and tools to measure resilience and conduct resilience assessments across communities in a watershed. The objective is to address specific threat scenarios acting on individual vulnerabilities of specific communities and multiple compounding threats acting at a watershed-wide scale. The grantee will work on developing a methodological toolbox for resilience quantification and decision support for watershed-level mitigation efforts. Additionally, the grantee will support the development of collaborative approaches to build a shared vision of resilience scalable to all levels of a watershed. The grant has an estimated total program funding of $965,000 and expects to make one award. The close date for applications is July 31, 2024.

Investigation Into Overtopping Mitigation Strategies
Engineer Research and Development Center
Summary: The Engineer Research and Development Center is offering a cooperative agreement for an investigation into overtopping mitigation strategies. This opportunity is restricted to non-federal partners of the Gulf Coast Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU). The research aims to assess factors that may lead to overtopping breach and relevant failure mechanisms for embankment and floodwall designs, as well as identify current practices and potential emerging technologies for mitigating overtopping of flood control levees and floodwalls. Laboratory investigations and numerical methodologies will be used to improve performance predictions, and physical testing will be conducted to assess different mitigation strategies. The agreement has an award ceiling of $400,000 and a close date of August 27, 2024. For more information, contact Phoebe V Fuller at phoebe.v.fuller@usace.army.mil.
Risk Analysis of Biotechnology for the Protection of Environmental Resources
Dept. of the Army -- Corps of Engineers
Summary: The Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers is offering a federal grant opportunity titled "Risk Analysis of Biotechnology for the Protection of Environmental Resources." This grant aims to develop adaptive and resilient risk management frameworks for maximizing the environmental benefits and minimizing the environmental harms of novel biotechnologies. The grant seeks to achieve this objective by conducting a comparative analysis of existing and emerging risk management frameworks and stewardship practices regulating environmental biotechnology. It also aims to identify and assess key metrics impacting the resilience of risk management methodologies and community partnerships. Additionally, the grant includes a component of comparative biotechnology modernization forecasting to characterize future relationships in environmental stewardship. The ultimate goal of this research is to improve understanding of how biotechnology activities should be regulated to generate public value and protect the public interest, while promoting widespread access to the benefits of novel environmental biotechnology and mitigating potential harms and threats to human health and the environment. The grant is open to non-federal partners of the Great Lakes-Northern Forest Cooperative Ecosystems Studies Unit (CESU). The closing date for applications is August 28, 2024, and the estimated total program funding is $250,000. For more information, contact Stacy Thurman at stacy.d.thurman@usace.army.mil.
