California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), the Delta Science Program (DSP), and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) are pleased to announce this joint Delta Science Proposal Solicitation Notice (Solicitation). This Solicitation includes the CDFW Delta Water Quality and Ecosystem Restoration Grant Programs science topics for Fiscal Year 2019-2020, and the Delta Stewardship Councils (Council) funding from state and federal sources. Awards will follow a joint CDFW and DSP selection process. All eligible entities are encouraged to submit proposals for qualified projects.
CDFW and the DSP have collaborated throughout previous Delta Water Quality and Ecosystem Restoration Grant Program solicitations to fund scientific study projects that support implementation of the Science Action Agenda. USBR desires supporting efforts that enhance and accelerate critical science related to water and fish management and adaptive management in the Bay-Delta, which are supported through the Science Action Agenda. Building on this collaborative effort, the CDFW and the DSP have developed a joint Solicitation with funding contributed by USBR intended to:Establish a simplified proposal submission process with one application; Use standardized proposal review criteria specific for evaluating scientific studies in the Delta; Collaboratively prioritize funding for a large group of high-quality scientific studies that inform environmental management
A single application will be used for both programs. While the two programs have much in common, there are important differences between them.
