ALEXANDRIA, VA, November 4, 2020—The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Resource Conservation and Resiliency program area.  SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development.  The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

The Resource Conservation and Resiliency program area supports the development of the science, technologies, and methods needed to manage DoD’s installation infrastructure in a sustainable way.  SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following focused Statements of Need (SONs) in Resource Conservation and Resiliency:

  • Threatened, Endangered, and At Risk Terrestrial Species’ Response to Multiple Stressors
  • Saltwater Intrusion Impacts on DoD Installation Infrastructure

Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 SON will be selected through a competitive process. All pre-proposals are due to SERDP by January 7, 2021 by 2:00 p.m. ETThe SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website.


SERDP Executive Director Dr. Herb Nelson, Deputy Director Dr. Andrea Leeson, and the SERDP Program Managers conducted the “SERDP Funding Opportunities” webinar on November 10, 2020, from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. ET.  This briefing offered valuable information for those who are interested in new funding opportunities with SERDP.  A recording of the webinar is available on the SERDP and ESTCP website.
