NOTE This event occurs in the past

On behalf of the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE), the Ohio Sea Grant College Program and the University of Toledo, are requesting Harmful Algal Bloom Research Initiative (HABRI) pre-proposals for one- to two-year research projects from Ohio colleges and universities that provide:

(1) strategies and tools to evaluate or mitigate HABs
(2) research assistance to guide wetland restoration projects to reduce nutrient and sediments
(3) research on manure, agricultural drainage practices and nutrient application methods
(4) evaluation of climate change effects on nutrient runoff
(5) watershed studies
(6) cost effectiveness analysis of agricultural nutrient reduction practices
(7) assessment of occurrence of cyanotoxins and health effects
(8) evaluation of treatment technologies for water treatment systems.

Ultimately, this request for proposals is seeking research and innovation that will aid the management efforts of state agencies and will support Governor Mike DeWine’s H2Ohio Initiative. We anticipate approximately $5 million in funding to be available for this competition. Proposed project budgets will be evaluated/assessed based on the scope of work; there is no predetermined minimum or maximum funding amount per projects. ODHE HABRI encourages both large, multi-investigator, interdisciplinary proposals as well as smaller more targeted proposals.

Matching funds are no longer required and indirect costs are limited to a maximum of 8%. Full proposal instructions and documents are linked below.

Project funding will begin on 1 August 2022 and will end on 31 December 2024.
