The Grant Plant routinely reviews funder websites and notices and is pleased to share some upcoming opportunities with you.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Single Cell Biology Data Insights Grant December 5, 2023.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) seeks to support projects that will advance the fields of single-cell biology and data science. Grantees will be expected to interact with existing groups to build community and accelerate progress. Applications are encouraged from computational experts outside the field of single-cell biology, but with expertise relevant to overcoming current bottlenecks and driving discoveries in the single-cell biology field. Projects may include: dedicated efforts to democratize access and usability of existing datasets; demonstration of utility by leveraging existing datasets to address impactful and challenging biological questions; and developing methods that enable greater biological insight and other major challenges brought forward. This request for applications is the last of three currently planned cycles, with successful projects receiving 18 months of funding support.

The State of New Mexico Energy, Minerals & Natural Resources Department’s Community Energy Efficiency Development Program December 22, 2023.

The State of New Mexico, Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department (EMNRD), Energy Conservation and Management Division (ECMD) is requesting applications from Indian nations, tribes, or pueblos; county or municipal governments; and the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) for Community Energy Efficiency Development (CEED) Program projects to provide improvements to residential buildings in underserved communities in New Mexico that will in the aggregate, decrease residents’ energy use, energy burden, and/or carbon intensity of energy consumption. Community energy efficiency projects will target the adoption of energy-efficient consumer behavior, equipment, or devices that result in a decrease in energy consumption without reducing the amount or quality of energy services. This includes health and safety measures, including those that use efficient equipment or devices to improve indoor air or drinking water quality, and equipment or electrification upgrades.

The New Mexico Enviornment River Stewardship Program January 4, 2024.

Offerors will provide a comprehensive proposal for projects occurring in New Mexico that improve surface water quality or river habitat. All surface waters of the state as defined by New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC) are eligible for funding. Successful proposals will result in a contractual agreement with the State of New Mexico Environment Department. The contractual agreements will be developed through Subrecipient Agreements or Capital Outlay Agreements (COA) for government-to-government entities including tribal governments, and contracts for non-government entities to conduct projects throughout New Mexico that improve surface water quality or river habitat. NMED is procuring a mix of professional services, general services and goods necessary for the completion of projects.

AmeriCorps State and National Native Nation Planning Grants April 5, 2024.

AmeriCorps is committed to working on a Nation-to-Nation basis with Tribal Nations and upholding the federal government’s Tribal trust responsibility. AmeriCorps planning grants provide support to a grant recipient to develop an AmeriCorps program that will engage AmeriCorps members in implementing evidence-based interventions to solve community problems. Grant recipients are awarded up to $240,000 for a 12-month planning period and are encouraged to compete for an AmeriCorps program grant in the following grant cycle if they deem the fit with AmeriCorps to be of use to their community. A planning grant may not be used to support AmeriCorps members. Applicants will apply for a Cost Reimbursement grant. The project period is no more than a year, with a start date proposed by the applicant. The project start date may not occur prior to the date AmeriCorps awards the grant.

The U.S. Department of Energy Transmission Siting and Economic Development Grants Program April 5, 2024.

On August 29, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a funding opportunity of up to $300 million in grants to accelerate and strengthen electric transmission siting and permitting processes. Administered by DOE’s Grid Deployment Office, the Transmission Siting and Economic Development (TSED) grant program is a new initiative designed to overcome state and local challenges to expanding transmission capacity while also supporting communities along major new and upgraded lines. Through this program, DOE will support two distinct categories of activities related to the development of new or upgraded interstate and offshore transmission lines: siting and permitting and economic development.
