View Calendar

Since 2007, the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) has funded more than 60 innovative drought research projects through the Coping with Drought research competition. Research through the Coping with Drought competition assesses impacts of drought on agriculture, ecosystems, and water resources and develops decision support tools for regional, state, and local use. This research contributes to the understanding of how communities become aware of drought threats and how they can improve preparation and planning. The projects incorporate consultation with stakeholders, and focus on information that is most useful for decision-making to reduce vulnerability; models and tools that bring this information to decision makers; and strategies for improving NIDIS’ engagement with communities in preparedness.

Letter of Intent Deadline: August 9, 2021 (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time)
Full Proposal Deadline: October 18, 2021(5:00 p.m. Eastern Time)

This competition will focus on research to improve our understanding, early warning, and management of drought risk in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to inform more deliberate and expanded decision-making that supports sustainable, healthy, and resilient ecosystems.

Pending the availability of funds in FY 2022, NIDIS anticipates a funding allocation of up to $2.0 million. Proposals may request funding of up to $600,000 to be expended over two years in the form of Cooperative Agreements. A total of 6–7 projects may be funded.

Letter of Intent Deadline: August 9, 2021 (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time)
Full Proposal Deadline: October 18, 2021(5:00 p.m. Eastern Time)

Applications should be developed by or in full partnership with tribal nations to fund the implementation of actions—together with research on those actions—to build drought resilience contained in existing plans and strategies.

Plans may include, but are not limited to, drought contingency plans; drought, water, or natural resource plans; agricultural resource management plans; or climate adaptation plans.

Pending the availability of funds in FY 2022, NIDIS anticipates a funding allocation of approximately $1.5 million. Proposals may request funding of up to $500,000 to be expended over two years in the form of Cooperative Agreements. A total of 6–7 projects may be funded.
