Competition: Marine Mammal Stocks and Fishery Interactions in the Southeast Atlantic

Closing Date: June 19, 2014

Date of Posting: May 8, 2014 Revised Posting: May 22, 2014. The National Sea Grant College Program, in conjunction with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Southeast Region is soliciting proposals from Sea Grant programs within the Continental Southeast Atlantic Coast (North Carolina through Florida) to support a competitive research program addressing the yearly research priorities and needs for the Bottlenose Dolphin Take Reduction Plan and Pelagic Longline Take Reduction Plan. More information about these plans can be found at Consult the Federal Funding Opportunity NOAA-OAR-SG-2014-2004033, available at, for eligible applicants, required elements of the application, how to submit, evaluation criteria, general programmatic priorities and selection factors, and other necessary information.  Submit your application to SPECIAL PROJECT "D" under this Opportunity in

The expected budget for the program is up to $400,000 over a four-year period. Applications may be up to four-years duration (this is an expansion from the two-year limit in the FFO) and may request up to $400,000 over the four year period. Matching funds are not required for this project; however federal indirect costs are limited to a maximum of 10% of the federal request. It is anticipated that one award will be made to the Continental Southeast Atlantic Coast (depending on the quality and number of applications received.) The award will be a cooperative agreement because of substantial involvement of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).  The recipient facilitates a proposal generation, review, selection and management process that handles marine mammal bycatch issues in the Southeast Atlantic. The recipient works with NMFS to manage the focused research program based on research needs identified by its respective take reduction teams.

Applications should propose a start date of September 1, 2014, and an end date no later than August 31, 2018. An application must include the following components as described in the Federal Funding Opportunity: SF-424 form, 90-2 Project Summary (use the "Short Form"), and Project Description.  In addition, a 90-4, SF 424A, and SF 424B are required.
