Providing a safe, stable and appropriate transitional living shelter for runaway and homeless and/or pregnant and parenting youth is the most recent grant program being funded by the Administration for Children & Families. A Cooperative Agreement is being offered by the Administration for Community Living to help individuals understand and exercise their pension rights. The regional counseling project promotes the protection of the rights, financial security, and independence of older individuals and empowers them to make informed choices for a secure retirement. NASA announces the release of its annual omnibus solicitation for basic and applied research, Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Science (ROSES) 2018. Each announcement has its own individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics.

Grant Title: ROSES 2018: Habitable Worlds
Grant Info: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=300795
Details: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) announces the release of its annual NASA Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2018. ROSES is an omnibus NRA, with many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. All together these cover the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. Organizations of every type, domestic and foreign, Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. Note that it is NASA policy that all research involving non-U.S. organizations will be conducted on the basis of no exchange of funds. Awards range from under $100K per year for focused, limited efforts (e.g., data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive activities (e.g., development of hardware for science experiments and/or flight). The funds available for awards in each program element offered in ROSES-2018 range from less than one to several million dollars, which allows for selection from a few to as many as several dozen proposals, depending upon the program objectives and the submission of proposals of merit. Electronic submission of proposals is required by the respective due dates for each program element and must be submitted by an authorized official of the proposing organization. Electronic proposals may be submitted via the NASA proposal data system NSPIRES or via Grants.gov (notices of intent (NOIs) can only be submitted via NSPIRES; Grants.gov does not support NOI submission). Every organization that intends to submit a proposal in response to ROSES-2018 must be registered with NSPIRES; organizations that intend to submit proposals via Grants.gov must be registered with Grants.gov, in addition to being registered with NSPIRES. Such registration must identify the authorized organizational representative(s) (AOR) who will submit the electronic proposal. All Principal Investigators (PIs) and other participants e.g., Co-Investigators (Co-Is) must be registered in NSPIRES regardless of the submission system. Potential proposers and proposing organizations are urged to access the system(s) well in advance of the proposal due date(s) of interest to familiarize themselves with its structure and to enter the requested information. The ROSES-2018 NRA is available at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2018. Tables 2 and 3 of the NRA, which are posted at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2018table2 and http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2018table3, respectively, provide NOI and/or proposal due dates and hypertext links to descriptions of the solicited program elements in the Appendices of this NRA. To learn of additional new program elements or amendments to this NRA, proposers should subscribe to: (1) The SMD mailing lists (by logging in at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions"), (2) The ROSES-2018 RSS feed for amendments, clarifications, and corrections to at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/ROSES-2018/, and (3) The ROSES-2018 due date Google calendar.

Frequently asked questions about ROSES-2018 will be posted at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/faqs/. Further information about specific program elements may be obtained, after the release of ROSES-2018, from the individual Program Officers listed in the Summary of Key Information at the end of each program element of ROSES-2018 and at http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/program-officers-list/.
