This week, we are highlighting new federal grant opportunities from the National Science Foundation, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Department of Health and Human Services.
National Science Foundation
Current Closing Date for Applications: March 06, 2019
In 2016, the National Science Foundation (NSF) unveiled a set of “Big Ideas,” 10 bold, long-term research and process ideas that identify areas for future investment at the frontiers of science and engineering (see https://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/big_ideas/index.jsp). The Big Ideas represent unique opportunities to position our Nation at the cutting edge of global science and engineering leadership by bringing together diverse disciplinary perspectives to support convergence research. As such, when responding to this solicitation, even though proposals must be submitted to the Directorate for Engineering (ENG), Office of Emerging Frontiers and Multidisciplinary Activities (ENG/EFMA), once received the proposals will be managed by a cross-disciplinary team of NSF Program Directors. The Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF), one of the Big Ideas, is one mechanism by which NSF is responding to the challenges and opportunities for the future of jobs and work. The overarching vision is to support convergent research to understand and develop the human-technology partnership, design new technologies to augment human performance, illuminate the emerging socio-technological landscape, understand the risks and benefits of new technologies, understand and influence the impact of artificial intelligence on workers and work, and foster lifelong and pervasive learning.

This week’s #FundingFriday post highlights grant programs that fund supportive services for people with Alzheimer’s disease, for math and science education, for collecting water use data, and more. Local, county and state governments are eligible to apply for these grants.
The objective of the Alzheimer’s disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) is to expand the availability of dementia-capable support services for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), their families and their caregivers. This goal will be achieved by: 1) enhancing the ability of state systems and programs to embed dementia-capability in their service networks; and 2) by delivering dementia-capable supportive services using evidence-based and/or evidence-informed interventions to support persons with dementia and their caregivers. The grantees receive targeted technical assistance provided by the National Alzheimer’s and Dementia Resource Center.
