With this joint solicitation, the NSF and the U.S Department of Commerce (DOC) National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) call for proposals for research to advance fundamental understanding of disaster resilience in support of improved, science-based planning, policy, decisions, design, codes, and standards.

NSF and NIST will hold an informational webcast on August 3, 2020, to discuss the DRRG program and answer questions about this solicitation. More details about the webcast will be posted at https://www.nist.gov/el/disaster-resilience/disaster-resilience-federal-funding-opportunity-ffo as they become available.
