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 | September 2017

The intent of this notice is to provide an update to investigators who are interested in potential research opportunities from JFSP. Investigators should be aware that the final decision regarding FY18 topic selection has been delayed and will not be made until fall 2017. One or more topics that have been described in the July 2017 Notice of Intent (NOI) may be dropped or included in the final notice, and the specific focus of individual topics may be altered. Investigators should recognize this uncertainty and not invest substantial time or resources working on proposals until the FONs and their 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 FONs are formally posted. Those formal FON postings will be available on https://www.firescience.gov and investigators can subscribe to our weekly Friday Flash eNews where announcements will be made later this fall.
