Additional Information on Eligibility:
Eligible applicants may be institutions of higher education, nonprofits, commercial organizations, international or foreign organizations or governments, individuals, state, local and Indian tribal governments. Eligibility also depends on the statutory authority that permits NOAA to fund the proposed activity. Refer to the CFDA in order to determine an applicant's eligibility.
If the applicant is a university that has a NOAA Joint or Cooperative
Institute (CI), the institution is encouraged to submit an application that
will be associated with the CI. The application must specify the name of the
CI, its most recent award number, and the NOAA-approved research theme
applicable to the work to be performed in the project narrative. The
application will use the facilities and administrative rate (F&A or Indirect
cost rate) associated with most recent CI award.
If the application is selected for funding, NOAA will notify the university
that a separate competitive award will be issued with its own award number.
However, the competitive award will include a Special Award Condition (SAC)
that evidences the link between it and the CI award. The SAC will provide
(1) that the university has submitted the proposal to be associated with the
CI; (2) that any existing University/NOAA MOA will be incorporated by
reference into the terms of the competitive award, and (3) that any progress
report(s) for the competitive award must follow the timetable of and be
submitted by the CI directly to the funding program. Copies of these progress
reports will be attached to the CI's performance report as an appendix.
