The interagency Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is soliciting proposals from both government and non-government entities through several formal Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) announcements beginning July 13th and remaining open through September 28th at 5 pm MT. For those involved in wildland fire science, please consider applying to advance important research and support sound decision-making on the ground.

Primary NOFO
The primary announcement seeks proposals focused on:
1. Accelerating science to action in fire-prone ecosystems: Spurring innovation in adaptation through knowledge exchange and place-based partnerships.
2. Effective fire communication and outreach.
3. Prescribed fire effects on water quality and quantity.
4. Managing carbon emissions in ecosystems with deep organic soils.
5. Social equity and wildland fire impacts, mitigation, response, and recovery.
6. Characterizing wildfire risk in wildland-urban interface and urban settings.

Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) Award NOFO
For current master and doctoral students in the field of wildland fire and related physical, biological, and social sciences. Proposal must address management- or policy-related questions on one or more of the following general topic areas: fuels management and fire behavior, changing fire behavior, emissions and air quality, fire effects and post-fire recovery, relative impacts of prescribed fire versus wildfire, or human dimensions of fire.

Regional Fire Science Exchange NOFO
This solicitation is seeking individual proposals (i.e., each proposal must be specific to one region) for the following nine regions of the Fire Science Exchange Network (FSEN): Appalachians, California, Great Plains, Lake States, North Atlantic, Southern, Southern Rockies, Southwest, and Tallgrass Prairie. The objective of the proposal must be to lead and execute a particular regional fire science exchange for a period of two years as part of the FSEN.
