Funding Available for Environmental Research and Development

The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Resource Conservation and Resiliency program area. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

The Resource Conservation and Resiliency program area supports the development of the science, technologies, and methods needed to manage DoD’s installation infrastructure in a sustainable way. SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following focused Statements of Need (SONs) in Resource Conservation and Resiliency:

- Advanced Understanding and Methods of Invasive Species Control

- Innovative Approaches to Resolving Sea-Level Related Data and Datum Gaps Worldwide

Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 SON will be selected through a competitive process. All pre-proposals are due to SERDP January 6, 2022 by 2:00 p.m. ET. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website.
