GLIN==> IISG RFP - due Feb. 24, 2003

The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant College Program requests preproposals in the areas of Coastal Resources and Regional Growth. Priority areas include (1) the development of analytical methods or models that can better identify, forecast, and assess the physical, social or economic impacts of regional development on critical coastal resources and habitats; (2) the creation and evaluation of new regulatory and/or market-based management techniques and institutions that can better reconcile the protection of critical coastal resources with the promotion of needed new residential, commercial and industrial development; and (3) the formulation and assessment of improved forecasting, shoreline stabilization and improvement, and capital facilities planning techniques that can better address the metropolitan-scale and longer-term resource sustainability challenges posed by regional growth and global climate change impacts in the southern Lake Michigan basin.

Priority will be given to researchers in Illinois and Indiana.  Preproposals are due February 24, 2003. Awards of $40,000-$60,000 per year will be made for the 2004-2006 biennium.
