Title 2021 Delta Science Awards
Description The Solicitation will be administered by the Council’s Delta Science Program (DSP) and will further the DSP’s legislatively mandated mission to "provide the best possible unbiased scientific information to inform water and environmental decision-making in the Delta … through funding research, synthesizing and communicating scientific information to policy-makers and decision-makers, promoting independent scientific peer review, and coordinating with Delta agencies to promote science-based adaptive management." -Delta Reform Act 2009, Water Code Section 85280(b)(4). This Solicitation seeks research with direct management implications, thus the 2017-2021 Science Action Agenda (SAA) is the key source of focus areas for scientific studies in this Solicitation. As called for in the 2019 Delta Science Plan, the Science Action Agenda (SAA) prioritizes and aligns science actions to fill gaps in knowledge and build science capacity to address current and anticipated management needs. Humans are an influential and inextricable component of the Delta environment. This solicitation seeks proposals that integrate social and biophysical sciences to better understand the socio-ecological processes of the watershed at local or regional scales. The Solicitation also seeks smaller research proposals focused on social sciences and/or biophysical sciences. All proposals should address the SAA action areas and or the Sacramento River Science Partnership (which seeks to support collaborative and structured decision-making between agencies and stakeholders with the intent of reducing scientific uncertainty in the upper Sacramento River through specific scientific studies) topics. December 15 is the Letter of Intent deadline with full proposals due in february
Amount $ 9 million total with 700,000 maximum per proposal
