FY2014 Funded Projects
In FY2014 the ABSI LCC had approximately $120K of project funds. In January 2014 we issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA F14AS00054) to solicit proposals that addressed the topics of: 1) Invasive and Introduced Species; and 2) Contaminants and Pollutants. In March 2014 the Steering Committee approved funding of one project for each topic. The remainder of our funding will be used to support a workshop for the Aleutian and Bering Climate Vulnerability Assessment project that will bring together the five expert working groups to summarize their findings and results.
In addition to projects that we are supporting directly, the ABSI LCC has been successful at receiving nearly $300K of outside grant money to fund our applied science priorities.
