Joint Fire Science Program Funding Opportunities
The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is accepting proposals for the following funding announcements, due October 14th, 2021.

1. Social and ecological recovery of communities impacted by wildfire
Inform the development or improvement of strategies, tools, and resources used for post-fire community recovery, such that they facilitate recovery efforts that increase the resilience of social-ecological systems to future wildfires.

2. Collaborative development of ecosystem mapping products for fire and fuels management
To develop, using a collaborative framework, prototype mapping protocols and products that capture current ecosystem condition, desired condition, and departure from desired condition at spatial and temporal resolutions relevant to fire and fuels management decisions.

3. Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN)
Current master and doctoral students enrolled at colleges or universities within the US in the field of wildland fire and related physical, biological, and social sciences may apply for a Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) award. The purpose of a GRIN award is to enhance student exposure to the management and policy relevance of their research to achieve beneficial outcomes of funded work.

4. Regional Science Exchange and Outreach
Lead and execute a particular regional fire science exchange for a period of one to three years. The JFSP funds and provides oversight to a national collaborative of 15 regional wildland fire science exchanges: the Fire Science Exchange Network (FSEN). The FSEN provides the most relevant, current wildland fire science information to federal, state, local, tribal, and private stakeholders within ecologically similar regions.
