Small Grants Competition

2019 Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments Small Grants Competition


Updated June 17, 2019


In 2019, the Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments (GLISA) will award several 1-year demonstration grants of up to $20,000 each to organizations that will work with GLISA to address the risks of climate variability and change in the Great Lakes region. We seek boundary organizations to collaborate with decision makers from a diverse range of sectors and communities to implement climate adaptation projects in the Great Lakes region using current GLISA climate information services. 

Proposal Process and Timeline:

The call for letters of intent was released on March 20. Letters of intent were due on April 12th, and were required to be eligible to apply for a 2019 GLISA small grant. GLISA evaluated all letters and invited select teams to submit a full proposal. All applicants were notified the week of May 13, and full proposals from invited teams were due on June 14th at 5pm Eastern. The call for full proposals and submissions instructions were sent directly to invited teams. 

GLISA is in the process of reviewing submissions. In mid-July, grantees will be notified and project abstracts will be posted here. Projects will start as early as October 2019.
