FY2018 NGGDPP Grant Opportunity for State Geological Surveys Announced

The FY2018 NGGDPP grant opportunity for state geological surveys is posted in grants.gov. The grant opportunity identifier is G18AS00010 and may be accessed here: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html?keywords=G18AS00010. Proposals are due February 13, 2018.

As in previous years, NGGDPP prioritizes rescue, preservation, and public exposure of geoscientific materials and data for further research. In 2018, state geological surveys may propose a separate pilot project to not only catalog metadata, but also include associated data files in the National Digital Catalog to allow direct access and download.

A webinar discussing the Program Announcement and proposal submission process was conducted January 10, 2018. View Webinar Recording.
