2016 National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program - 0 views

  •  
    2015 Forest Service National Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Deadline: December 15, 2015 The Secretary of Agriculture has a congressionally designated advisory council that assists the U.S. Forest Service in establishing the grant categories and recommendations of final proposals for the Forest Service to consider. This is the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC). The Council serves to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation's urban and community forests and related natural resources. The NUCFAC seeks to establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources, which, if well managed, improves the public's health, well-being, economic vitality, and creates resilient ecosystems for present and future generations. The Council recommends urban and community forestry projects that have national or multi-state application and impact through the U.S. Forest Service's competitive Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program. This year, the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (NUCFAC) has identified three national grant categories: 1. Analysis and Solutions for Development and Redevelopment Impacts on Urban and Community Forests, 2. Building Human Health Through Urban and Community Forestry, and 3. Climate Change and Its Impact on Trees and Water. An applicant may apply to more than one category; however they are to use a separate application for each category. The purpose of these grants is to address national issues. This RFP is not for local or State-wide projects.

RFA-ES-15-001: TaRGET II: Environmental Epigenomic Analysis in Tissue Surrogates (U01) - 0 views

  •  
    Environmental exposure induced perturbations of epigenomic marks are correlated with disease pathogenesis.  Identifying changes in epigenomic marks (e.g., DNA methylation, histone modifications, chromatin accessibility) in affected tissues/cells is not always feasible in humans. The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to establish a consortium that will explore the conservation of perturbations of epigenomic marks across target tissues/cells and surrogate tissues/cells using mouse models of environmentally relevant diseases. Ultimately, these analyses will provide insights into the design and interpretation of human studies where target tissues are inaccessible.

NIJ FY15 Research and Evaluation on Victims of Crime - 0 views

  •  
    The National Institute of Justice has a longstanding history of collaborating with and supporting the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) on research, evaluation, and programmatic projects. Over the years, the shared priorities of OVC and NIJ have resulted in a number of collective projects, workshops, and research. In 2013, OVC began Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services which called for the development of research to build a body of evidence-based knowledge on victims and victimization.
     
    With this solicitation, NIJ is collaborating with OVC to build on three areas of research that are of interest to both agencies. These topics include:
    1.     Studying the Victim-Offender Overlap.
    2.     Understanding the Violent Victimization Experiences of Young Men of Color.
    3.     Research on the Broader Impacts of School Shootings.
      
    Applicants should submit proposals that address one of the three topics.

nsf.gov - Funding - Cognitive Neuroscience - US National Science Foundation (NSF) - 0 views

  •  
    The Cognitive Neuroscience program seeks highly innovative proposals aimed at advancing a rigorous understanding of human cognition, including how the human brain mediates action, affect, creativity, decision making, intentionality, perception, social processes, and thought.  Topics may bear on core functions such as attention, emotion, empathy, executive processes, language, learning, memory, music, sensory processing, sleep, representation of self and other, reasoning and rhythm. Topics may also include how human cognition develops and changes in the brain across the lifespan.

    The program is particularly interested in supporting the development of new techniques and technologies for recording, analyzing, and modeling complex brain activity and human brain mapping. Such projects should include a plan for sharing new software and other technologies with the research community at large.  Additionally, the program is interested in supporting projects addressing the growing amount of data collected across disparate lab environments, which may require new standardization, curation, and sharing solutions. 

    Studies of disease states (e.g., Alzheimer's disease, Autism, brain damaged patients, Parkinson's disease and Schizophrenia) may be components of projects supported by this program. However, the emphasis in such projects must be to advance basic scientific understanding of healthy neural mechanisms, and not on disease etiology, diagnosis, or treatment.

BLM OR/WA - Western Snowy Plover Monitoring and Nest Protection - 0 views

  •  
    Per language in the Oregon Natural Heritage Act, the Oregon Biodiversity Information Center (ORBIC), currently located at Portland State University, is the State agency responsible for rare and endangered invertebrates in Oregon. As such, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) has granted the program limited authority to administer and manage a program for federally threatened and endangered invertebrate species, as provided under Section 6 of US Federal Endangered Species Act. As ORBIC is the clearing house that provides the monitors and coordinates and maintains Oregon's most comprehensive database of rare, threatened and endangered species, the BLM has been partnering with ORBIC for the past 20 years to conduct monitoring of the Oregon Coast western snowy plover population. This monitoring is a recovery task identified in the Western Snowy Plover Recovery Plan (USFWS 2007) and the Oregon Conservation Program for the Western Snowy Plover (ODFW 1994). The objective of this program is to continue annual monitoring of the Oregon Coast population of snowy plover reproductive success to assess whether recovery goals under the Endangered Species Act are being met.
