NIST is committed to advancing resilience in the built environment, from codes and standards to building design and construction. The National Academies described disaster resilience as "a national imperative" in its 2012 report . As such, research and development programs within Federal agencies, including NIST, have been targeting advancing disaster resilience.
NIST released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on June 28, 2018 to help further its commitment to enhancing the nation's built resilient infrastructure. The Disaster Resilience (DR) Research Grants Program sought applications from eligible applicants to conduct research aimed at advancing the principles of resilience in building design and building codes and standards. Research proposals must have supported the overall effort of developing science-based building codes by evaluating potential technologies and architectural design criteria to improve disaster resilience in the built environment. Research projects must have aligned with NIST work in:
This page provides additional information and reminders that may prove helpful to those with an interest in applying. All applications must be submitted through Grants.gov.
