Hi everyone,

Apologies for the cross posting, but I figured this might be of interest to
various people on these lists using FOSS GIS tools in the maritime arena.

After all, how often do we get offers of funding for development :-)

The Marine Ecosystem-based Management Tool Innovation Fund
Request for Letters of Intent

The Marine Ecosystem-based Management Tool Innovation Fund is now
accepting Letters of Intent to submit grant applications.  The Fund is a
two year initiative supported by the David & Lucile Packard Foundation
to stimulate the development and dissemination of creative software
tools for Marine Ecosystem-Based Management (MEBM).  We seek to expand
the network of MEBM tool developers through the establishment of
targeted small grants and an associated technical support program. The
program will grant approximately $500,000 a year for two years in small
competitive grants to a broad range of organizations and developers.
The initiative will aggressively provide detailed tool development
guidelines, technical support, training workshops and assistance in tool
development to the grantees for the duration of the fund.  The primary
deliverable products will be the innovative, interoperable and freely
disseminated tools developed by the grantees.  We encourage all
applicants (there are currently no restrictions on who may apply) to
submit letters of intent.  To apply: please visit our website
(http://mgel.env.duke.edu/mebm) and read the instructions under "Grant
Application Process".  Letters of Intent along with a 1-page letter of
introduction are due by March 30th.  If possible, please submit via
email.  Letters of Intent will be reviewed and full application packages
sent to all relevant projects by April 10th.  If you have any questions
at all, please feel free to contact our project manager at
daniel.dunn at duke.edu.
