CICEET Releases FY 2008 Funding Opportunities

The Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental 
Technology (CICEET) invites proposals to its FY 2008 funding opportunity 
programs. Through these programs, CICEET makes strategic investments in 
the development, demonstration, and application of tools to detect, 
prevent, and reverse the impacts of coastal pollution and habitat 
degradation to coastal ecosystems and communities.

1) CICEET’s Mitigating Shoreline Erosion along Sheltered Coasts Funding 
Opportunity seeks to provide a better understanding of how to use 
different erosion prevention measures to protect sheltered coastlines 
from the impacts of rising sea levels and waves generated by extreme 
weather, as well as to protect, preserve, and restore ecosystem function.

2) CICEET’s Environmental Technology Development and Demonstration 
Funding Opportunity has the following two goals, developed in support of 
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s five-year 
strategic plan for research:

• Develop and/or demonstrate technology to detect and quantify the 
impacts of human activity on coastal water quality, species, and habitats.

• Develop and/or demonstrate technology to protect coastal water quality 
and/or restore coastal habitats.

Both funding opportunities reflect CICEET’s approach to RFP development, 
one that incorporates an analysis of the technical and non-technical 
factors that influence coastal management problems, and mandates the 
active participation of intended end users in technology development and
