||NOAA/NOS/NCCOS/CSCOR is soliciting proposals under the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise (EESLR) Program to improve the management of regional and local ecosystem effects of sea level rise and coastal inundation through targeted research on key technologies, natural and nature-based infrastructure, physical and biological processes, and model evaluation. The overall goal of EESLR is to integrate dynamic physical and biological processes with sea level rise and coastal inundation to improve the prediction of coastal ecosystem effects to enable enhanced coastal resiliency. This information will be used to advance the capacity and capabilities of the NOAA Sentinel Site Program. It is anticipated that up to $800,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2016 for the first year of research. Approximately 2 to 4 proposals, for approximately 3-4 years in duration, are expected to be funded at a level not to exceed $300,000 per year per proposal. In addition to this annual funding limit, any proposals submitted with total budgets (across all years) that are greater than $1,200,000 will not be considered for funding.
