Competition Opens

05/31/2024

Competition Closes

11/07/2024

Description

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission seeks applications involving collaborative teams of archivists and other practitioners to address archival capacity building and 2 related challenges in the processing, long-term preservation, discovery, access, and research use of archival collections at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The Commission seeks applications from collaborative teams involving HBCU-based repositories, libraries, research centers, and/or other archival or community-based archival entities serving to build capacity at HBCUs, working together to advance the capacity and effectiveness of HBCU archives to care for their collections and make them discoverable and accessible to the public and to the broader field of researchers, students, and teachers. The collaborative teams should demonstrate a commitment to building meaningful, mutually-beneficial and respectful collaborations by promoting resource sharing and capacity building at all levels. Collaborative teams also must demonstrate commitment to institutional advancement and capacity-building for small and underserved HBCU archives and repositories, especially those organizations with missions to serve a collective of HBCUs; strengthen the archival ecosystem that supports HBCU collections and history; and/or service similar organizations that preserve collections that document African American or other marginalized histories. Prospective applicants to the Capacity Building for HBCU Archives program may: ? share affinities among the scope and subject matter of their collections; and/or ? provide a service or services to a member-based collective, consortium, or alliance of similar organizations; and/or ? serve similar types of user communities such as HBCUs. Competitive proposals will focus on one or more of the following areas: Education and Training ? To provide archival training for working professionals and other stakeholders currently working in HBCU libraries and archives that have insufficient archival training but whose essential job duties require archival activities on a regular basis. Such training should equip working professionals with practical archival tools, skills, and best practices to integrate into their daily work and archival processes at their home institution. ? To provide education and training for HBCU archivists and other stakeholders on current electronic records systems and related tools and best practices for preserving, arranging, processing, and describing these and other born-digital and digitized records collections. ? To create a “traveling archivist” or similar field-service program that will send professional archivists and librarians to provide high quality assistance on-site. Library or archival staff at partnering HBCU repositories will receive practical and affordable 3 recommendations they can undertake to improve collection preservation and access. For example, activities can include a site visit to the participating repository and a survey of their collections followed by specific recommendations made by the traveling or visiting archivist. ? To provide archival education and training programs, in collaboration with community-based archives or other local cultural memory entities, to cultivate a community of practice that can lead to cost-savings and long-term sustainability for HBCU archives. Capacity Building ? To hire consultants to assist archives and libraries at HBCUs to develop basic planning and process documents to enhance eligibility for higher levels of funding. Examples include but are not limited to the development of strategic plans, collection management plans, preservation plans, emergency plans, digital infrastructure plans; sustainability plans, and/or climate action plans. ? To provide direct assistance to HBCUs for the development of strategic plans and assessment documents to increase the capacity to sustain collections long term. Examples include but are not limited to preservation assessment, self-assessment, and/ or conservation assessment. ? To develop or expand existing models for collaboration with community-based archives or consortia that support enhanced discovery, online access to, and expanded research use of HBCU archival collections. ? To assist HBCU archives and their community-based partners in developing programs that leverage their collective professional knowledge, skills, and resources. Preservation and Digitization Preparation Grants ? To purchase or provide essential preservation needs, such as shelving, archival furniture, and related archival equipment or systems for collections management. ? To purchase or provide essential archival rehousing supplies for collections at HBCUs. This includes but is not limited to protective enclosures and archival boxes and shelving. ? To purchase or provide digitization equipment and accompanying training. ** If you have additional ideas for a possible application – whether involving one of the above suggested areas of focus, or another idea that builds the capacity of HBCU archives to care for and provide discovery and access to their collections – we strongly encourage you to get in touch to discuss your plans before drafting or making your application. All applicants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to submit draft materials for additional comment and feedback. (Drafts are due no later than August 15, 2024.) 4 Award Information The Capacity Building for HBCU Archives grant is for one year. Awards may range from $150,000 to $250,000 with the possibility of renewal up to two years. The NHPRC expects to make up to six grants in this category for up to $1,000,000. Applications are due on November 7, 2024. Building Capacity at HBCU Archives Grants begin no earlier than July 1, 2025. Eligibility Eligible applicants: ? US nonprofit organizations including HBCUs, educational institutions serving HBCUs, and/or similar community-based organizations serving HBCUs. ? Colleges, universities, and other academic institutions actively serving HBCUs. ? State or local government agencies. Applications from and collaborations involving Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are strongly encouraged. For a comprehensive list of the Commission’s limitations on funding, please see “What we do and do not fund.” Applications that consist entirely of ineligible activities will not be considered. In order to ensure eligibility, applicants should first review the rules and regulations governing NHPRC grants under the Administering an NHPRC Grant section. Cost Sharing Cost sharing is not a requirement for this program. However, the applicant's financial contribution may be included on the NHPRC Budget form. Cost share may include both direct and indirect expenses, in-kind contributions, non-Federal third-party contributions, and any income earned directly by the project. Indirect costs must be listed under the applicant’s cost sharing contribution. NHPRC grant recipients are not permitted to use grant funds for indirect costs (as indicated in 2 CFR 2600.101).

Description

This program element does not have a proposal due date. Proposals may be submitted at any time, pending certain eligibility timing issues related to resubmissions and duplicate proposal avoidance, see the program element text and appropriate overview appendix (e.g., B.1 or C.1). The date shown of 3/28/2025 is the last day that proposals may be submitted subject to the ROSES-24 rules and the current Guidebook for Proposers. The ROSES-25 version of this program element is planned to overlap with this ROSES-24 version by a few weeks, allowing continuous submission of proposals across ROSES years. Please check the solicitation for review dates to help time your submission. Proposers must retrieve the instructions document (zip file) associated with the application package for this opportunity as there is at least one required form that must be attached to the submitted proposal package. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released its annual omnibus Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2024 (OMB Approval Number 2700-0092, CFDA Number 43.001) on February 14, 2024. In this case "omnibus" means that this NRA has many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. All together these cover the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. However, most extramural research awards deriving from ROSES will be grants, and many program elements of ROSES specifically exclude contracts, because contracts would not be appropriate for the nature of the work solicited. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. In most cases, organizations of every type, Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, domestic and foreign (with some caveats), may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. Tables listing the program elements and due dates (Tables 2 and 3), a table that provides a very top level summary of proposal contents (Table 1), and the full text of the ROSES-2024 "Summary of Solicitation", may all be found NSPIRES at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2024. This synopsis is associated with one of the individual program elements within ROSES, but this is a generic summary that is posted for all ROSES elements. For specific information on this particular program element download and read the PDF of the text of this program element by going to Tables 2 or 3 of this NRA at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2024table2 and http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2024table3, respectively, click the title of the program element of interest, a hypertext link will take you to a page for that particular program element. On that page, on the right side under "Announcement Documents" the link on the bottom will be to the PDF of the text of the call for proposals. For example, if one were interested in The Lunar Data Analysis Program (NNH24ZDA001N-LDAP) one would follow the link to the NSPIRES page for that program element and then to read the text of the call one would click on “C.8 Lunar Data Analysis Program (.pdf)” to download the text of the call. If one wanted to set it into the context of the goals, objectives and know the default rules for all elements within Appendix C, the planetary science division, one might download and read “C.1 Planetary Science Research Program Overview (.pdf)” from that same page. While the letters and numbers are different for each element within ROSES (A.12, B.7, etc.) the basic configuration is always the same, e.g., the letter indicates the Science Division (A is Earth Science, B is Heliophysics etc.) and whatever the letter, #1 is always the division overview. Frequently asked questions for ROSES are posted at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/faqs. Questions concerning general ROSES-2024 policies and procedures may be directed to Max Bernstein, Lead for Research, Science Mission Directorate, at sara@nasa.gov, but technical questions concerning specific program elements should be directed to the point(s) of contact for that particular element, who may be found either at the end of the individual program element in the summary table of key information or on the web list of topics and points of contact at: http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/program-officers-list. Not all program elements are known at the time of the release of ROSES. To be informed of new program elements or amendments to this NRA, proposers may subscribe to: (1) The SMD mailing lists (by logging in at http://nspires.nasaprs.com and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions"), (2) The ROSES-2024 blog feed for amendments, clarifications, and corrections to at https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/solicitations/roses-2024/, and (3) The ROSES-2024 due date Google calendars (one for each science division).

Description

Note: Each funding opportunity description is a synopsis of information in the Federal Register application notice. For specific information about eligibility, please see the official application notice. The official version of this document is the document published in the Federal Register. Free Internet access to the official edition of the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations is available on GPO Access at: http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/index.html. Please review the official application notice for pre-application and application requirements, application submission information, performance measures, priorities and program contact information. For the addresses for obtaining and submitting an application, please refer to our Revised Common Instructions for Applicants to Department of Education Discretionary Grant Programs, published in the Federal Register on December 7, 2022. Purpose of Program: In awarding research grants, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) intends to provide national leadership in expanding knowledge and understanding of (1) education outcomes for all learners from early childhood education through postsecondary and adult education, and (2) employment and wage outcomes when relevant (such as for those engaged in career and technical, postsecondary, or adult education). The IES research grant programs are designed to provide interested individuals and the general public with reliable and valid information about education practices that support learning and improve academic achievement and access to education opportunities for all learners. These interested individuals include parents, educators, learners, researchers, and policymakers. In carrying out its grant programs, IES provides support for programs of research in areas of demonstrated national need. Competitions in This Notice: The IES National Center for Education Research (NCER) is announcing two competitions--one competition in each of the following areas: using longitudinal data to support State education policymaking and transformative research in the education sciences. Using Longitudinal Data to Support State Education Policymaking (ALN 84.305S). Under this competition, NCER will only consider applications that address State agencies’ use of their State’s education longitudinal data systems to identify and reduce opportunity and achievement gaps for learners from prekindergarten through adult education. Transformative Research in the Education Sciences (ALN 84.305T). Through this program, IES seeks to support innovative research that has the potential to make dramatic advances towards solving seemingly intractable problems and challenges in the education field and/or to accelerate the pace of conducting education research to facilitate major breakthroughs. For the FY 2025 competition, the Transformative Research in the Education Sciences grant program will focus on accelerating learning and reducing persistent education inequities by leveraging evidence-based principles from the learning sciences, coupled with advanced technology to create high-reward, scalable technology solutions. Multiple Submissions: You may submit applications to more than one of the FY 2025 research grant programs offered through the Department, including those offered through IES as well as those offered through other offices and programs within the Department. You may submit multiple applications to each IES grant program announced here as long as they address different key issues, programs, or policies. However, you may submit a given application only once for the IES FY 2025 grant competitions, meaning you may not submit the same application or similar applications to multiple grant programs within IES, to multiple topics within a grant competition, or multiple times within the same topic. If you submit multiple similar applications, IES will determine whether and which applications will be accepted for review and/or will be eligible for funding. In addition, if you submit the same or similar application to IES and to another funding entity within or external to the Department and receive funding for the non-IES application prior to IES scientific peer review of applications, you must withdraw the same or similar application submitted to IES, or IES may otherwise determine you are ineligible to receive an award. If reviews are happening concurrently, IES staff will consult with the other potential funder to determine the degree of overlap and which entity will provide funding if both applications are being considered for funding. Exemption from Proposed Rulemaking: Under section 191 of the Education Sciences Reform Act, 20 U.S.C. 9581, IES is not subject to section 437(d) of the General Education Provisions Act, 20 U.S.C. 1232(d), and is therefore not required to offer interested parties the opportunity to comment on matters relating to grants.

For the addresses for obtaining and submitting an application, please refer to our Revised Common Instructions for Applicants to Department of Education Discretionary Grant Programs, published in the Federal Register on December 7, 2022. Purpose of Program: The EIR program, established under section 4611 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA), provides funding to create, develop, implement, replicate, or take to scale entrepreneurial, evidence-based (as defined in this notice), field-initiated innovations to improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students and to rigorously evaluate such innovations. The EIR program is designed to generate and validate solutions to persistent education challenges and to support the expansion of those solutions to serve substantially higher numbers of students. The central design element of the EIR program is its multitier structure that links the amount of funding an applicant may receive to the quality of the evidence supporting the efficacy of the proposed project. A goal of the program is for projects that build this evidence to advance through EIR’s grant tiers: “Early-phase,” “Mid-phase,” and “Expansion.” “Early-phase,” “Mid-phase,” and “Expansion” grants differ in terms of the evidence of effectiveness required to be considered for funding, the expectations regarding the kind of evidence and information funded projects should produce, the scale of funded projects, and, consequently, the amount of funding available to support each type of project. Expansion grants are supported by strong evidence (as defined in this notice) for at least one population and setting, and grantees are encouraged to implement at the national level (as defined in this notice). Expansion grants provide funding for the implementation and rigorous evaluation of a program that has been found to produce sizable, significant impacts under a Mid-phase grant or other effort meeting similar criteria, for the purposes of (a) determining whether such impacts can be successfully reproduced and sustained over time, and (b) identifying the conditions in which the program is most effective. This notice invites applications for Expansion grants only. The notices inviting applications for Early-phase grants and Mid-phase grants are published elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register. Assistance Listing Number (ALN) 84.411A.

Mid-phase grants are supported by moderate evidence (as defined in this notice). Mid-phase grants provide funding for the implementation and rigorous evaluation of a program that has been successfully implemented under an Early-phase grant or other similar effort, such as developing and testing an innovative education practice at a local level, for the purpose of measuring the program’s impact and cost-effectiveness. This notice invites applications for Mid-phase grants only.

Early-phase grants must demonstrate a rationale (as defined in this notice). Early-phase grants provide funding for the development, implementation, and feasibility testing of a program that prior research suggests has promise, for the purpose of determining whether the program can successfully improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students. Early-phase grants are not intended to simply expand established practices or address needs unique to one particular context. Rather, the goal is to determine whether and in what ways relatively new practices can improve student achievement and attainment for high-need students.

Description

This initiative would solicit research to target gaps in our knowledge about how best to address the mental health needs of YLWH in low- and middle-income countries in ways that are easy to scale up. There are two main goals of the initiative. The first is to increase the number of mental health interventions that are tailored to the unique needs of adolescents living with HIV, both in terms of their developmental needs as well as the issues they have to attend to as a result of living with a chronic, stigmatized disease. The second goal is to ensure that interventions are streamlined so that they can be implemented in resource-limited settings.

Description

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) seeks applications for the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Data Collaborative Equity Analysis Awards. Awards are intended to support state, territory, or county TANF agencies in conducting equity-focused analyses of state TANF and other human services data. Equity-focused analyses may examine the fair, just, and impartial treatment of individuals under the management and practices of the TANF program. For example, analyses may assess disparities or disproportionalities across different social groups with respect to benefit levels, referral to specific programs, or sanctioning rates. During the 36-month project period, award recipients will participate in intensive training and technical assistance provided by an ACF-funded contractor as part of the TANF Data Collaborative 2.0 (see description below). The technical assistance will build the capacity of agencies to execute a multi-year project. Award recipient projects will identify relevant equity-focused research questions, and using available data, build data models and visualizations to inform program improvement, particularly as it relates to social equity in TANF, which is defined as the fair and equitable distribution of public services and implementation of public policy.TANF programs aim to address the employment and self-sufficiency needs of TANF recipients and other individuals with low incomes. The existence of federally reported TANF administrative data and TANF agency case management data creates unique opportunities to evaluate equity in multiple stages of the program process, allowing TANF agencies to build evidence on the potential inequities that may exist in their programs for participants. The TANF Data Collaborative Equity Analysis Awards are intended to support participating TANF agencies to:Build data analytic capacity among TANF agency staff through intensive training and technical assistance;Contribute to evidence on the social equity of the TANF program by analyzing TANF administrative data; Encourage innovative approaches to leveraging one or more existing TANF data sources;Demonstrate the potential for improved TANF data quality, use, and governance to benefit improved agency programming and individual and family outcomes.OPRE funded the TANF Data Collaborative (TDC) as part of the TANF Data Innovation contract between 2017 and 2022, which provided training and technical assistance to directly support the learning of pilot sites while generating lessons and materials for others interested in understanding and working with TANF data. (More information on TDC is available at https://www.acf.hhs.gov/opre/report/increasing-data-analytics-capacity-….) OPRE awarded a contract for the TANF Data Collaborative 2.0 in FY 2023 to deliver training and technical assistance to entities awarded TANF Data Collaborative Equity Analysis Awards.
