The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, (NIEHS) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), intend to promote a new initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to invite new and renewal applications for Centers for Oceans and Human Health. These multi-component projects will characterize and evaluate the impact of climate change on emerging public health threats associated with marine and Great Lakes Basin environments. Each center will include distinct but integrated research projects on marine or Great Lakes exposures, mechanisms of toxicity or human exposure, and the influence of climate change, using multidisciplinary ocean science, analytical, toxicological and biomedical approaches. Centers will foster strong community partnerships through a Community Engagement Core (CEC) for impactful communication and translation of research.

This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. The FOA is expected to be published in summer 2022 with an expected application due date in fall 2022.

Estimated Total Program Funding: $8,500,000
Award Ceiling: $950,000
Expected Number of Awards: 6

Application Deadline: November 1, 2022 (*this is a forecasted opportunity)
