Open Solicitations:

Energy:

The purpose of this solicitation is to fund projects that develop and demonstrate technologies to reduce impacts from scaling and corrosion at geothermal power plants in California or advance processes to enhance the recovery of lithium and other valuable minerals from geothermal brine at the Salton Sea geothermal field.

This FOA supports foundational research at domestic institutions of higher education, including Minority Serving Institutions (MSI), to address challenges faced by marine energy industries and spur innovation and development.

The CIRCULAR program aims to develop innovative solutions for a domestic circular EV battery supply chain. It seeks to reduce imports, emissions, and energy consumption associated with battery production and recycling.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a funding opportunity of up to $31 million for projects supporting enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) wellbore tools as well as the use of low-temperature geothermal heat for industrial processes.

MassCEC is seeking a Lead Research Consultant for The Cost of Electrifying Existing Buildings Study. The objective of this research initiative is to quantify and disseminate information on the cost of electrifying and increasing the energy efficiency of Massachusetts' existing building stock in alignment with the state’s 2050 net zero greenhouse gas limits.



Environment:

Priorities include delivering conservation education to tribal communities, increasing technical assistance to underserved producers, expanding engineering support, and adopting higher conservation standards.

Low-No Program funds will be awarded competitively for the purchase or lease of low or no emission vehicles that use advanced technologies for transit revenue operations, including related equipment or facilities.

Buses and Bus Facilities Program funds will be awarded competitively to assist in the financing of capital projects to replace, rehabilitate, purchase, or lease buses and related equipment, and to rehabilitate, purchase, construct or lease bus-related facilities.

This announces the potential availability of cooperative agreements for the purpose of leveraging NRCS resources, addressing local natural resource issues, encouraging collaboration and developing state and community level conservation leadership.

A total of $12 million in grants are available to construct or reconstruct fueling facilities that provide natural gas and other alternative fuels, including electric charging infrastructure, within the Clean Transportation Zone.



Research and Education:

The intent of the Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF) solicitation is to provide the NSF-sponsored atmospheric sciences research community with access to specialized instrumentation for field and laboratory-based studies.

NIFA requests applications for the Higher Education Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 to conduct scholarship programs leading to either baccalaureate degrees within the Food and Agricultural Sciences or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degrees.

The I-Corps Hubs form the operational backbone of the NSF I-Corps program and serve as an integral piece of the National Innovation Network, providing researchers with training on how to translate their scientific discoveries into new technologies, products, processes and services to benefit society. The newest I-Corps Hubs funding opportunity seeks to support consortia of institutions spanning a distinct geographic region not currently covered by an existing I-Corps Hub.



Housing and Community Development:

PLHA provides funding to local governments in California for housing-related projects and programs that assist in addressing the unmet housing needs of their local communities.

Grants will support States in developing a methodology for determining open recalls on motor vehicles, informing owners and lessees of the open recalls at the time of registration, and evaluating through the analysis of completed recalls the performance of the notification program.

CAL FIRE's Wood Products and Bioenergy team seeks to maintain and enhance the wood products infrastructure of California to promote healthy resilient forests throughout the state by supporting a diverse set of business development and workforce development projects.


General Updates:

The maintenance window will be Saturday 12:01 AM to 6:00 AM ET the following business day (typically Monday). Production System will go Offline Saturday February 17, 2024 at 12:01 AM ET. Production System will go Online Monday February 19, 2024 at 6:00 AM ET.
