The Delta Science Program set a new deadline of June 30, 2010 for its 2010 Proposal Solicitation Package (formerly advertised as the 2009 PSP). Approximately $8 million in grants will be awarded to fund research in four areas:

  • Native Fish Biology and Ecology
  • Food Webs of Key Delta Species and Their Relationship to Water Quality and Other Drivers
  • Coupled Hydrologic and Ecosystem Models
  • Water and Ecosystem Management Decision Support System Development

This research will fill critical gaps in understanding of the current and changing Bay-Delta system.
