Request for Proposals for White-Nose Syndrome Research Grants 2017

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pleased to announce the availability of research funding in 2017 to investigate issues related directly to the management of white-nose syndrome disease of hibernating bats. This opportunity is open to non-governmental, university, and private researchers, as well as State and Federal agencies, and Tribes. The deadline for proposal submission is May 30th.

The Service has targeted up to $1.2 million, with a limit of $250,000 for individual projects, to investigate high-priority questions about white-nose syndrome that will improve our ability to manage the disease and conserve affected bats.

This funding is among three other Service opportunities for white-nose syndrome in 2017: 1) the Bats for the Future Fund (with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and U.S. Forest Service) www.nfwf.org/bats; 2) White-nose Syndrome Grants to States program (grants.gov Funding Opportunity # F17AS00166 open through May 15, 2017), and 3) White-nose Syndrome Small Grants for Communications and Research on WNS (with Wildlife Management Institute, anticipated in Fall 2017).
