The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Environmental Restoration program area. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, andtime required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustainingmilitary readiness.
The Environmental Restoration program area focuses on remediating and managing contaminated lands on current and former military installations. It supports the development of innovative technologies to
characterize, remediate, and scientifically manage contaminants in soil, sediments, and ground, surface and wastewater. SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following focused Statements of Need (SONs) in Environmental Restoration:
– Transformation of Polyfluoroalkyl Substances Found in Soil and Groundwater at AFFFImpacted Sites
– Improved Management of Stormwater Impacts at Department of Defense Facilities
– Improved Understanding of Concrete and Asphalt Impacted by Historical Releases of
– Attenuation Mechanisms and Degradation Kinetics of Minor Components of Common
Groundwater Contaminant Mixtures
Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 SON will be selected through a competitive process.
All pre-proposals are due to SERDP January 6, 2022 by 2:00 p.m. ET. The SONs and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP website.
