GM-21-x03: Environmental Justice Technical Workshops for the Gulf of Mexico Region

This project aims to support BOEM’s effort to establish “best practices” for its Environmental Justice (EJ) analyses and communications.

BOEM integrates EJ directives into its National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) processes, assessments, and tribal consultations.

Thus,

its purpose is to robustly address Executive Orders 12898 and 14008 which direct Federal agencies to consider and communicate the potential disproportionate effects of their actions on low income, minority, and indigenous populations.

Renewable energy activities have become a potential new reality for the Federal OCS in the Gulf of Mexico with BOEM’s first wind energy lease auction scheduled for December 202 2. Thus, the project’s purpose is to inform our EJ assessments for both conventional and renewable energy development in the Gulf Region.

Also, the White House Environmental Justice Executive Council (WEJEC) and the Department of the Interior (DOI) have indicated that EJ analyses should be expanded, when appropriate, to include such issues as social and economic equity and climate change.

Thus, the project aims to explore effective ways for BOEM’s GOMR to address these issues under EJ.

In sum, the purpose of this project is to support BOEM decisionmaking regarding EJ-related processes, determinations, and outreach.

Additional Information of Eligibility:
Under this NOFO, only FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees are eligible to submit applications.

Applications received from entities other than FY 2021 NIST SBIR Phase I awardees will not be reviewed or considered for award.

Each applicant must qualify as an SBC for R/R&D purposes, as defined in Section 1.05 of this NOFO, at the time of award.

In addition, the primary employment of the principal investigator must be with the small business at the time of the award and during the conduct of the proposed research.

Primary employment means that more than one-half of the principal investigator's time is spent working with the small business.

Primary employment with a small business precludes full-time employment with another organization.

Occasionally, deviations from this requirement may occur, which must be approved in writing by the NIST Grants Officer after consultation with the SBIR Program Manager.

Further, a small business may only replace the principal investigator on an SBIR Phase II award if the NIST Grants Officer provides prior written approval.

Personnel obtained through a Professional Employer Organization or other similar personnel leasing company may be considered employees of the awardee.
