I am pleased to announce the Letters of Intent (LOIs) that have been selected to move forward and submit full proposals to ANR's Competitive Grants Program. This year we received a total of 117 LOIs, inviting 47 of them to submit a full application. In 2014, ANR conducted a formative assessment of the grants program to evaluate whether the intended goals of the program were being met or if there were plans in place to achieve appropriate outcomes. As a result, applicants this year were required to address strategic initiative priority issue areas to better facilitate the identification and measurement of efforts and impacts.
To view the list of approved LOIs, please see the attached PDF.
2015 Competitive Grants Cycle:
- Full proposals due: June 22, 2015
- Technical peer review: late June – early September 2015
- Strategic Initiative review and recommendations: September 2015
- Program Council review and recommendations: October/November 2015
- Announcement of funded grants: November/December 2015
While the funds available for the Competitive Grants Program will depend on a number of factors, ANR continues to be committed to providing as much support as feasible to address high-priority issues.
