NIST Seeks Disaster Resilience Grant Proposals



The DHSEM Mitigation and Recovery Section is sharing this grant opportunity.  This grant is not administered through DHSEM and DHSEM is not ableto provide technical assistance on the application. 

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is making up to $3 million in grant funding available for research aimed at (1) advancing the principles of disaster resilience in the design of building and infrastructure systems, and (2) developing building codes and standards that will lead to reduction of impact caused by windstorm and coastal inundation, wildland urban interface fires and earthquakes. The Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO) also seeks grant proposals for the development of innovative measurement methods and technologies to collect and evaluate building and infrastructure performance data in the wake of a hazard event. NIST anticipates funding five to 15 awards in the range of $300,000 to $1 million each for up to three years.

Applications for the Disaster Resilience Research Grants Program must be received in Grants.gov no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 23, 2016.

For more information, see the DR Research Grants Program webpage or contact Millie Glick, millie.glick@nist.gov (301) 975-5962.
