Posted in 1 by underwaterarchaeologyjobs on July 23, 2009

WASHINGTON, July 23 — The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration has four cooperative agreement opportunities for exploration and discovery of important maritime heritage sites.

The estimated total program funding available was cited as $400,000, although no specific amount for this award was indicated by the agency.

This funding opportunity is open to state, county, city, town, and Native American tribal governments; public, state and private institutions of higher education; nonprofits; for-profits; eligible agencies of the federal government; and non-domestic entities.

A grant notice from U.S. Commerce Department’s National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration states: “Proposals for exploration and discovery of significant maritime heritage sites are the priority. Submerged, previously sub-aerial, landscapes, shipwrecks, and other maritime cultural sites are typical focus subjects of the program. Proposals will emphasize the early phases of field archaeology: searching, locating, evaluating or inventorying sites.”

The funding opportunity number is NOAA-OAR-OER-2010-2002083 (CFDA 11.460). It was posted July 17 with an application closing date of Oct. 13.
