JFSP Funded Research Projects

The JFSP responds to the emerging needs of stakeholders by tailoring timely wildland fire research through an annual cycle of proposal solicitation, review, funding, and science delivery. JFSP research projects complement and extend in-house capacity of other federal fire research programs, including the U.S. Forest Service research stations and the U.S. Geological Survey. Through these partnerships, they can collaboratively mobilize with universities and other affiliates in the fire science community.

Wanted! JFSP Success Stories

We are looking to hear from you - scientists, researchers, and managers. Success stories demonstrate how the products from fire science research or other JFSP-funded activities are being implemented by the fire and/or fuels management community. They are about the application of scientific understanding or use of tools, models, or techniques resulting from individual projects or suites of projects over time. They show successful planning, implementation, outreach, products, or impacts (e.g., behavior changes, opportunities, resource recovery, or enhancement). They describe efforts at the organization, community, or agency level and at different spatial scales. Start sharing your stories now!

Funding Opportunity Notice (FON) Announcement | December 2017

The intent of this notice is to provide an update to investigators who are interested in potential research opportunities from JFSP.

Although a final FY18 appropriation has yet to occur, based on the information it has the JFSP has decided not to issue a primary FON for FY18. JFSP still intends to issue a GRIN FON for FY18 sometime in 2018. Potential GRIN topics are described in the July 2017 Notice of Intent (NOI) found at: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html. Investigators should not invest substantial time or resources working on proposals until the GRIN FON and its associated topics are formally posted.

Investigators should not contact the JFSP Office or Governing Board members seeking further information on these topics. No further information will be released until the FON is formally posted.

Formal FON posting will be available on https://www.firescience.gov. In addition, investigators can subscribe to JFSP’s weekly Friday Flash eNews where announcements will be made about FON release.
