Russell Sage Foundation Seeks Letters of Inquiry for Future of Work Research

The Russell Sage Foundation was established for "the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States." In pursuit of that mission, the foundation now dedicates itself to strengthening the methods, data, knowledge, and theoretical core of the social sciences as a means of diagnosing social problems and improving social policies.

The foundation's program on the Future of Work supports research on the causes and consequences of changes in the quality of jobs for less- and moderately-skilled workers in the United States. The foundation seeks research proposals related to the role of changes in employer practices; the nature of the labor market; and the impact of public policies on the employment, earnings, and the quality of jobs for American workers.

Examples of the kinds of topics and questions that are of interest include but are not limited to changing economies, changing family structure, and policy responses (or lack thereof); the economics of productivity and the role of managerial practices in improving job quality; the causes and consequences of job polarization; and the effects of long-term unemployment and strategies to prevent long-term disadvantage. Priority will be given to analyses of original qualitative and quantitative data sources, and novel uses of existing sources of data to address important questions related to the interplay of market and non-market forces in shaping the well-being of workers, today and in the future.

The foundation encourages methodological variety, but all proposals should have a well-developed conceptual framework and research design. Analytical models should be specified and research questions and hypotheses should be clearly stated. Awards are available for research assistance, data acquisition, data analysis, and investigator time for conducting research and writing up results.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $150,000 will be awarded to qualified organizations.

Eligibility: To be eligible, applicants must be considered a nonprofit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Review Code.

Due Date: Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than May 31, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by August 15, 2017.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service Announces Funding for State Conservation Innovation Grants

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) in the state of California. The purpose of CIG is to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies, while leveraging the Federal investment in environmental enhancement and protection in conjunction with agricultural production. CIG projects are expected to lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches (such as market-based systems) into NRCS technical manuals and guides or to the private sector. CIG is used to apply or demonstrate previously proven technology in order to increase adoption with an emphasis on opportunities to scale proven, emerging conservation strategies. CIG promotes sharing of skills, knowledge, technologies, and facilities among communities, governments, and other institutions to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users. CIG funds projects targeting innovative on-the-ground conservation, including pilot projects and field demonstrations. CIG does not fund research projects, with the exception of on-farm conservation research. On-farm conservation research is defined as an investigation conducted to answer a specified conservation-related question using a statistically valid design, while employing farm-scale equipment on farm fields. Specifically, a valid study design will use an appropriate number of replications and statistical analysis of results. The Agency will only fund research projects that stimulate innovative approaches to natural resource management in conjunction with agricultural production.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range up to $75,000.

Eligibility: Eligible entities include Indian Tribes, State and local units of government, non- governmental organizations, and individuals. NRCS will accept proposals under this notice for single or multiyear projects, not to exceed three years, submitted by eligible entities from California.

Due Date: July 7, 2017 https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/portal/nrcs/main/national/programs/financial/cig/
