State of Wisconsin Joint Solicitation
On this page is information about the State of Wisconsin Joint Solicitation. This year the solicitation includes two separate programmatic requests:
(1) The Wisconsin Groundwater Research and Monitoring Program covering project proposals for funding in the state fiscal year 2014 (FY 14) beginning July 1, 2013; and
(2) The USGS 104(B) Research Grants Program from the University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute covering project proposals on climate change for funding in the federal fiscal year 2013 (FY 13) beginning March 1, 2013.
The solicitation is a coordinated effort of the University of Wisconsin System (UWS) and the Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources (DNR); Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP), and Safety & Professional Services (DSPS). This cooperative solicitation allows interested individuals to prepare project proposals that can be submitted to several different funding sources simultaneously and eliminates the need to submit similar proposals several times for different solicitation efforts.
Funding is available for new and continuing monitoring or research to meet specific agency needs or objectives. Up to $331,000 may be available for new efforts in the FY 14 Wisconsin Groundwater Research & Monitoring Program, and up to $72,000 may be available for new efforts in the FY 13 USGS 104(B) Research Grants Program. You are invited to review the materials on this site and decide if you wish to submit proposals. The deadline for both requests is Wednesday, November 14, 2012. NOTE: The proposal format for each programmatic request is different; please read the guidelines carefully.
It is our intent that this joint solicitation will make it easier for interested researchers to prepare proposals, promote coordination among state agencies and researchers, and enhance the ability of state agencies to meet their objectives.
