Description:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Ocean Service published a
notice of availability of financial assistance in the Federal Register
of June 30, 2004 (69 FR 125), entitled ``Availability of Grant Funds
for Fiscal Year 2005''. The NOS Coastal Services Center had a Call for
Proposals for the Director's office titled, ``FY 2005 Coastal Services
Center Integrated Ocean Observing System.''
The program amends the June 30, 2004 notice by expanding one of the
existing program funding areas. NOS solicits projects that facilitate
building partnerships and regional organizational structures for
regional observing systems. Because, of agency-wide discussions the
Coastal Services Center will consider proposals from seven additional
geographical areas. The new geographic areas are: The southeastern
U.S., the mid-Atlantic region, the Great Lakes region, the Pacific
northwest region, the Alaskan region, the central California region,
and the southern California region. In addition, the following
represents an increase in the scope of the original announcement--all
proposed projects should focus on core coordination activities
primarily and build upon core coordination activities for any proposed
development of data management, outreach, and other coordination or
user needs activities.
NOS also increases the total maximum available funding that is
expected under this announcement from $1,000,000 to $5,000,000 dollars
depending on congressional appropriation. The Center expects to award
eight to eleven grants of $100,000 to $400,000.
To accommodate the added geographical areas and the increased scope
of the original geographies, the due date for proposals for all
geographical areas is December 1, 2004. The application date for
funding for the Pacific Islands, the Northeastern U.S., the northern
Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands will also be December 1,
2004, since the scope of the projects and proposals has now been
broadened. If an applicant has already submitted an application, NOS
will accept revisions.
All program requirements published in the June 30, 2004 notice
apply to this notice. Full program information and requirements are
found in the Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) which can be found on
http://www.Grants.gov Web site or on the Coastal Services Center Web site
http://www.csc.noaa.gov/funding.
The Director's Office program, seeks proposals for grant projects that enhance the organization, implementation, and application of regional coastal ocean observing systems. Coastal observing systems are meant to include the sensors, personnel, and data management that obtain, process and apply regular and sustained in-situ and/or remote observations of the physical, chemical, and biological environment of Great Lakes, estuaries, and the near shore ocean of the United States. Of particular interest to the Center is the coordination of such systems for management of coastal and ocean resources and for the benefit of coastal communities. Total available funding is expected to be between $200,000 and $1,000,000 depending on congressional appropriation. The DO program has two funding priorities for FY05: (1) projects that facilitate building partnerships and regional organizational structures for regional observing systems; these coordination projects will focus on work in up to four geographies-Pacific Islands, the Northeastern US, the northern Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands; and (2) projects that strengthen programmatic linkages between the Center, NOAA Estuarine Reserves Division, National Estuarine Research Reserves (NEER) and the establishment of regional observing.
