Funding Opportunity to Collect Additional Observations that Address Identified Environmental Concerns

The Southeast Coastal Ocean Observing Regional Association (SECOORA) invites proposals for research projects that address one or more of the following environmental concerns within the Southeast US region:

  • Harmful algal blooms
  • Sound in the marine environment
  • Coral health

Funding will be provided for one to two 12-month projects that will improve understanding of these environmental concerns. Projects should address a key gap in scientific understanding, technology, or data.  Observations may be physical, bio-optical, chemical, or acoustic with the intent to integrate with SECOORA’s observational, modeling, and/or data management sub-systems.

Proposals must significantly involve stakeholders for the environmental concern being addressed. Grant awards will range between $5,000 and $30,000 with an estimated 1 to 2 awards provided.  Federal agencies and federal employees are not allowed to apply for funding.

Proposals are due via email to Jennifer Dorton ( by April 15, 2019.
