The Gulf Research Program’s Exploratory Grants Funding Opportunity is now open. Applications are being accepted for innovative research projects that seek to break new ground in Informing Coastal Community Planning and Response to Environmental Change in Regions with Offshore Oil and Gas Operations. These grants will support the development and testing of new methods, technologies, and approaches that improve the capabilities of communities in coastal regions to successfully plan for, mitigate, and adapt to environmental change–specifically in the context of how these changes may affect or be affected by offshore oil and gas operations.
This opportunity is relevant to a wide range of disciplines and participants who work on issues at the community-environment interface, including university researchers, consulting groups, community planners, state and local agencies, community organizations, and others.
