Interagency Announcement for Decision Making and Valuation for Environmental Policy (DMVEP)


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announce their intent to continue to support an extramural grants program on Decision Making and Valuation for Environmental Policy in fiscal years 2001-2003. The DMVEP competition encourages research that will contribute to the development of practical, credible approaches for estimating the benefits and costs of environmental programs and improving decision making about environmental issues. This program began under a Memorandum of Agreement between the agencies in fiscal year 1995. Awards made through this competition are dependent upon responsiveness of the proposals to the announcement, the quality of the proposed research, and the availability of funds. EPA and NSF anticipate making approximately 10 awards, totalling about $1.5 million, in fiscal year 2001. The projected range is from $60,000 to $200,000 per award per year, with durations from 1 to 3 years. Field experiments, survey research, and multi-investigator projects may require the higher funding level; however, total requests in excess of $400,000 are discouraged. Awards resulting from this competition may be made by either EPA or NSF, at the option of the agencies, not the grantee. Information on the EPA/NSF competitions and awards made in DMVEP in FY 1995 through 1999 may be found at http://www.nsf.gov/home/crssprgm/epa/start.htm, and at http://es.epa.gov/ncerqa.
