- Faculty & Researchers
Advance a robust predictive understanding of Earth’s climate and environmental systems and to inform the development of sustainable solutions to the Nation’s energy and environmental challenges.
Help individuals with low to moderate incomes finance the costs of household water wells that they own or will own.
Conduct research in topics that serve the public interest of safe and environmentally sound energy and mineral production on the nationals outer continental shelf.
Enhance the economic and energy security of the United States through the development of energy technologies.
Research that addresses the deep-time sedimentary crust and advances our understanding of environmental and evolutionary change.
An eligible applicant is any student, regardless of citizenship, who is enrolled towards a degree in a graduate program, that have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.
Water reclamation and reuse projects to supplement urban and irrigation water supplies through water reclamation and reuse, thereby improving efficiency, providing flexibility during water shortages, and diversifying the water supply.
Organizations with water or power delivery authority to leverage their money and resources by cost sharing with Reclamation on Drought Resiliency Projects that will increase the reliability of water supply.
Increase capacity of networks of local organizations to effectively address and/or participate in environmental health issue-based reform on behalf of their constituents
Protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and Great Lakes Basin.
Implementation of Great Lakes State Aquatic Invasive Nuisance Species Management Plans (State Plans).
Long-term protection, restoration, enhancement and/or establishment of wetlands and associated uplands habitats for the benefit of all wetlands-associated migratory birds.
Investigate the impact of climate change on emerging public health threats associated with marine and Great Lakes Basin environments.
Develop a product, process or service for commercialization with the aim of reducing disparities in healthcare access and health outcomes.
Undertake restoration actions that will help avert federal listing of species.
Develop communication systems employing “Digital Humans" to decrease dependence on petroleum and therefore increased energy security, decreased energy-related emissions, and increased efficiency of communication-related energy expenditure.
Restoration, rehabilitation, and improvement of wildlife habitat, wildlife management research.
Implementation of programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitats, including species that are not hunted or fished.
Minimize the energy impacts of processing, storing, and moving data within future computing systems.
Significantly advance our understanding of the food-energy-water system through quantitative, predictive and computational modeling, including support for relevant cyberinfrastructure.
Projects that save water, improve water management, create new supplies for agricultural irrigation, improve energy efficiency, and benefit endangered species.
Conduct land acquisition and construction projects that will will strengthen protection of key land and water areas.
Applied research and development (R&D) for technologies and systems that contribute to reductions in building energy consumption.
Advancement, production, and deployment of zero-emission public transportation vehicle technology and related infrastructure.
Advance counter-wildlife trafficking activities.
Projects that will address the scientific uncertainties and needs that can inform better conservation. Climate change, shifts in land-use, urban expansion, agricultural changes, are all contributing stressors affecting the plains and prairie potholes landscape.
Support efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, manage chemical risks, and protect America's water.
Develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitats, including species that are not hunted or fished.
Increase the reliability of water supply; improve exchange of water; and provide benefits for fish, wildlife, and the environment to mitigate impacts caused by drought.
Understand and anticipate the public health and environmental impacts and behavioral drivers of significant changes in energy production and consumption in the United States.
