The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is continuing to accept pre-proposals for the FY 2018 National Competitive Grant Program by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the National Institutes for Water Resources. Pre-proposals are requested on the topics of improving and enhancing the nation’s water supply and availability. Any investigator at an institution of higher learning is eligible to apply.
Pre-proposals may be for projects of one to three years (discrete 12-month budget periods required) and may request up to $250,000 in federal funds and require a 1:1 match.
Pre-proposals in PDF format must be emailed to TWRI Director Dr. John Tracy by 5 p.m. Eastern Time (4 p.m. Central Time), February 15. Only pre-proposals filed by that time will be transmitted to the National Grants Competition Pre-Proposal Peer Review Panel. After pre-proposals from all states are reviewed, 30 pre-proposals will be invited to submit a full proposal to the National Grants Competition.
Questions regarding this grant program can be directed to Tracy at John.Tracy@ag.tamu.edu or 979.842.7221.
