Program Description

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of University Programs (OUP) requests applications from U.S. colleges and universities to serve as a lead institution for a Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence. OUP is also posting a separate FOA for eligible applicants to submit single project proposals for consideration as a partner to this COE. Please see FOA Number DHS-14-ST-061-COE-001B or CDFA # 97.061 on http://www.grants.gov for directions on how to submit single project proposals. DHS may add individual project partners from applications received for either the Center Lead FOA or the Center Partner FOA to the Coastal Resilience Center. This FOA is organized along the lines of OUP's COE evaluation and selection process. Applicants for COE lead institution need to address the substantive research themes that DHS has identified in ?Section I. (D): Overarching Vision of the Coastal Resilience Center? and ?Section I. (E): Research and Education and Workforce Development Program,? i.e., Coastal Infrastructure Resilience, Building Resilient Communities, and Disaster Dynamics. Applicants must also thoughtfully address the management and organization of the COE, described in ?Section I. (F): Management and Administration.? Both high quality research and competent management are essential to creating and executing a successful DHS Center of Excellence program.
