Funding Agency Ocean Protection Council
Funding Title California Ocean Protection Council Grant Program
Description The California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) was established to improve the management and protection of ocean and coastal resources and ecosystems. One of the many ways the OPC achieves this purpose is by supporting innovative research that directly informs and improves the stewardship of ocean and coastal resources. In partnership with the state's two Sea Grant Programs, the California Sea Grant Program (CASG) and the University of Southern California Sea Grant Program (USCSG), the OPC is initiating a Proposition 84 competitive grant program to implement scientific research projects that directly support the OPC's priorities. A total of $6,000,000 is available to be awarded as grants to support research within the focus areas and priority research topics identified below. Focus Areas and Priority Research Topic Areas OPC has identified six broad focus areas that include all the priority research topic areas identified in this call. They are: 1. Ocean acidification and hypoxia, and other changes in ocean conditions from a changing climate 2. Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture 3. Sea-level rise adaptation and coastal resilience 4. Coastal sediment management 5. Marine pollution 6. Marine renewable energy Applicants must submit a pre-proposal to one of the Sea Grant programs (instructions and guidance provided below), depending on the focus area and priority research topic(s) that the proposed research addresses. If the proposed research addresses more than one of the focus areas, then pick one as primary, and identify the overlap in the pre-proposal document and on its cover page.
