Funding Opportunities: Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Modeling, Water Quality Assistance, Environmental Health


See the below funding opportunities from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and National Institute for Health:

Funding Opportunity: Modeling of Climate Change Mitigation, Impacts and Adaptation
Applications from eligible entities are currently being accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) to advance the field of climate economic modeling to assist decision makers and the public in effectively responding to the challenges and opportunities posed by climate change. The work involved in this effort includes two distinct modeling capabilities. The first is computable general equilibrium (CGE) modeling of climate mitigation and impacts at the level of disaggregation of U.S. states. The second is integrated assessment modeling (IAM) and assessment of multiple greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants to enhance understanding of climate change impacts. EPA seeks proposals from eligible entities that will enhance “studies related to the causes, effects, (including health and welfare effects), extent, prevention and control of air pollution.” Specifically, this effort is intended to contribute to the development and use of modeling tools to analyze the mitigation and impacts of greenhouse gas emissions.

Funding Opportunity: Training and Technical Assistance to Improve Water Quality and Enable Small Public Water Systems to Provide Safe Drinking Water
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to provide training and technical assistance for small public water systems to help such systems achieve and maintain compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), and to provide training and technical assistance for small publicly owned wastewater systems, communities served by onsite/decentralized wastewater systems, and private well owners to improve water quality under the Clean Water Act (CWA). Training and technical assistance activities provided to these systems, communities and private well owners should be made available nationally in rural and urban communities and to personnel of tribally owned and operated systems.

Funding Opportunity: Environmental Health Cohorts Maintenance and Infrastructure (R24)
Applicants from eligible entities are currently being accepted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to provide support for the maintenance of existing environmental epidemiology cohorts and their associated biorepositories; for the collection or development of additional measures; to facilitate follow-up of study participants especially during key windows of susceptibility, and to provide a structure to facilitate broader sharing of data and resources with the scientific community. The goal of this program is to provide stability to existing EECs by supporting the necessary infrastructure to retain trained field personnel essential to continue ongoing longitudinal data collection, to follow-up study participants, and to preserve the integrity and quality of specimen collection. Each resource grant is expected to focus on activities that will enable efficient planning and operation of cohorts in preparation to (1) maintain the scientific integrity of the resource and community engagement; (2) prepare for future scientific needs and direction; (3) promote engagement of new disciplines in the field; and (4) facilitate scientific collaborations across cohorts.
