12-5 Partnership to Promote Innovation in Environmental Practice (EPA)

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's National Center for Environmental Innovation (NCEI) is soliciting proposals from institutions that are interested in organizing two symposia over four years to promote sharing and transfer of innovative environmental protection approaches among States, EPA, and other primarily governmental representatives. EPA anticipates awarding one cooperative agreement under this solicitation. The goal is to increase understanding of new approaches, to facilitate use of proven concepts, and to encourage more innovation in environmental programs. EPA-OPEI-NCEI-09-02 (GG 3/4/09)

Deadline: 4/22/2009


12-6 Conservation Innovation Grants (USDA)

The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies while leveraging the federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection, in conjunction with agricultural production. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) into NRCS technical manuals, guides, and references, or to the private sector. CIG does not fund research projects. Instead, it is a vehicle to stimulate the development and adoption of conservation approaches or technologies that have been studied sufficiently to indicate a likelihood of success and to be candidates for eventual technology transfer or institutionalization. Kansas NRCS will accept applications for single or multi-year projects, not to exceed three years. Kansas component CIG projects must take place in Kansas; multi-state projects will not be considered. USDA-NRCS-KS-09-01 (GG 3/23/09)
