Coastal Hypoxia Research Program (CHRP)

National Ocean Service (NOS) - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - U.S. Department of Commerce

Agency: Federal

GrantWatch ID #205723

Grant Description

Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, IHEs, and for-profit organizations to reduce the negative effects of low oxygen levels on the environment. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete.

This solicitation is to improve the understanding of physical/biogeochemical effects of hypoxia and potential synergies with other stressors on living resources, habitats, and food webs. This information will enable proactive management to address current and future changes in habitat and species composition due to hypoxia.

The Competitive Research Program (CRP), part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS), supports the development of actionable information and tools that improve how the nation protects, manages, and conserves ocean and coastal ecosystems. NCCOS/CRP funds regional-scale and targeted research through a competitive, peer-reviewed process to address the Nation’s most pressing issues including harmful algal blooms and hypoxia research as authorized under the Harmful Algal Bloom and Hypoxia Research and Control Act, coastal resiliency, sea-level rise, ocean acidification, mesophotic coral ecosystems, and effective ecosystem-based management.

Research supported by NCCOS/CRP seeks to produce actionable information and user-driven products that will enable resource managers to assess management and policy strategies, as well as increase scientific understanding on issues threatening ecosystems and communities. To accomplish this, NCCOS/CRP emphasizes a collaborative research process that involves resource managers, planners, policymakers, and impacted communities as research project partners or advisors. To ensure useful results, NCCOS/CRP requires articulation of outcomes that benefit management in proposals and recipients must report progress toward achieving outcome-based goals annually.
