Munitions-Response Funding Opportunity

The U.S. Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Munitions Response program area.

SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks and time required to resolve environmental problems while enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

The Munitions Response program area supports the development and demonstration of innovative technologies that can characterize, remediate and scientifically manage sites that are affected by military munitions underwater.

Detection, classification and remediation of military munitions underwater proposals responding to the fiscal year (FY) 2021 statement of need will be selected through a competitive process. 

All pre-proposals are due to SERDP by January 7, 2020 by 2:00 p.m. ET.

SERDP will also fund environmental research and development through the SERDP Exploratory Development (SEED) Solicitation. The SEED program provides a limited amount of funding (not to exceed $250,000) for projects up to approximately one year in duration to investigate innovative approaches that entail high technical risk or require supporting data to provide proof of concept.

For FY 2021, Munitions Response SEED proposals are requested for: detection, classification and remediation of military munitions underwater.

All SEED proposals are due by March 5, 2020 by 2:00 p.m. ET.
