This comprehensive visitor use study is needed for the successful development and implementation of the Backcountry Management Plan at Katmai National Park and Preserve (KATM) and future planning efforts at Lake Clark National Park & Preserve (LACL).
The results will be used by park managers
to inform visitor use management including commercial activities and recreation uses.
At Katmai National Park and Preserve the results of the visitor use study will inform management strategies and alternatives development for the Backcountry Management Plan.
Lake Clark National Park & Preserve will also be able to use the results to inform future planning efforts.
Another important goal of the study is to provide a scientific basis for informed decision making with regards to high quality visitor experiences at Katmai National Park & Preserve and Lake Clark National Park & Preserve and achieving desired resource and visitor experience conditions.

Link to all ONR Funding AnnouncementsAdditional Information of Eligibility:
Proposals may be submitted only by U. S. universities with degree-granting programs in science and/or engineering.
Ineligible organizations (e.g., industry, DoD laboratories, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), and foreign universities) may collaborate on the research.
Eligible universities may submit proposals either individually or collectively, as consortia.
Proposing universities may establish research collaborations with industry or FFRDCs.
This measure allows universities the ability to access relevant experience outside of academia.
Costs for industry and/or FFRDC participation can be covered by sub-award of HEL-MRI funds and/or by funds otherwise available to them.
The main purpose of this initiative is to support university research; hence it is expected that award funds will remain vested substantially with the university, at least fifty-one percent (51%).
DoD laboratories can team with the universities to conduct the research but cannot receive HEL-MRI funds awarded via this funding opportunity announcement.
Proposals involving multiple organizations must name one principal investigator at a university as the responsible technical point-of contact.
This university will be the primary awardee for purposes of award execution.
The relationship among the research team members and their respective roles, as well as the apportionment (i.e., subaward by the primary awardee) of funds must be described in both the proposal text and budget.
All responsible sources from academia and industry may submit proposals under this FOA.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are encouraged to submit proposals and join others in submitting proposals.
However, no portion of this FOA will be set aside for HBCU and MI participation, due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable items of this research for exclusive competition among such entities.
FFRDCs, including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this FOA.
However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal Offerors are allowed so long as such arrangements are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC.
Navy laboratories and warfare centers as well as other DoD and civilian agency laboratories are also not eligible to receive awards under this FOA and shall not directly submit full proposals in responFull Opportunity Web Address:http://www.onr.navy.mil/Contracts-Grants/Funding-Opportunities/Broad-Agency-Announcements.aspxContact:
