  DOI: Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) - Primary Announcement CFDA: 15.232

The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is a partnership of six federal wildland management and research agencies with a need to address problems associated with managing wildland fuels, fires, and fire-impacted ecosystems. The Joint Fire Science Program provides funding for scientific studies to address problems associated with managing wildland fuels, fires, and fire-impacted ecosystems. The JFSP is soliciting proposals for research that (1) evaluates the effectiveness of fuels treatments across landscapes (>10,000 acres), (2) evaluates the influence of past wildfires on subsequent wildfire behavior, effects, and management, including suppression strategies, tactics and costs, (3) develops new science and knowledge to support improvement of wildland fire smoke emissions factors for secondary organic aerosols (SOAs), (4)assesses the impact of wildland fire smoke on human health in urban centers in the United States, (5) investigates the compatibility of fire and fuels management activities with habitat and population restoration of federally listed or candidate threatened and endangered (T&E) bat species, or (6)evaluates the effects of wildfire on the quantity, quality, and treatability of drinking water supplies, and their recovery over time.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (whitejrw@mailbox.sc.edu) by October 18, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

This is a collaborative agreement. DOI indicates that a letter of intent is NOT REQUIRED and a full proposal is due by November 22, 2013. For more information: http://pivot.cos.com/funding_opps/118897
