Natural Hazards Center - Hurricane Sandy-related Quick Response Grant Program
Tuesday, February 5, 2013


It’s been nearly three months since Hurricane Sandy swept through the Northeast and for many areas are there are long months of recovery ahead. Considering the work still in process, as well as the rarity of the storm, we would love to use some of our Quick Response Grant Program funds to assist researchers as they begin to collect perishable data. Sadly, though, requests to study the super storm have been lacking.

To that end, we’re issuing a special call for Hurricane Sandy-related Quick Response Grant proposals. Proposals submitted between now and February 15, 2013, will carry extra weight in our blind, weighted scoring process. If you have ambitions to study an aspect of disaster present in Hurricane Sandy, now is an excellent time to submit your proposal. And just a reminder, if your work substantially engages one or more of our preferred topic areas, it will have even more of an advantage.

Even though we're excited to learn more from this event, please remember that all the regular rules still apply: research must directly support fieldwork that captures perishable data, funds can only be used to reimburse travel-related expenses, and you must have IRB acceptance or waivers in hand before entering the field.

Take a close look at the program guidelines and how to submit a proposal, then let us know when you're ready to get started!
