USGS Seeks Earthquake Hazards Research Proposals

Application Deadline May 25, 2022

March 15, 2022


Contact: Jill Franks, Associate Coordinator for External Research, Earthquake Hazards Program, jfranks<at>;

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is currently soliciting project proposals for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 grants on earthquake hazards science and is authorized to award up to $7 million. Interested researchers can apply online at GRANTS.GOV

under funding Opportunity Number G23AS00249.

Note that all proposals submitted to the FY23 open application period are now limited to 15 pages, maximum. Please review the application instructions found in the GRANTS.GOV solicitation for more information.

The grants offered through the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program (EHP) are a long-standing effort that contributes to the advancement of earthquake research. The Earthquake Hazards Program encourages submission of new ideas that will provide more timely and accurate earthquake information, better characterization of earthquake sources, and a reduction in uncertainty for earthquake-hazard and risk assessments. USGS also seeks proposals that will help to mitigate earthquake losses and better inform the public about earthquakes and earthquake safety, such as earthquake early warning or other scientific efforts that will lead to reduced risk. The complete list of FY2023 EHP science research priorities is included in the grants solicitation found on GRANTS.GOV as well as the EHP External Grants website

Every year, the USGS invites innovative earthquake research proposals from colleges and universities, state and local offices, non-profit organizations, private institutions, unaffiliated scientists, engineers, and foreign organizations. Past funded grants projects include:

· Machine Learning and Global Navigation Satellite Systems displacements for earthquake early warning;

· Improving quantification of induced earthquake sources;

· Optimizing Machine Learning capabilities to detect earthquakes in Southeastern New Mexico;

· Improving earthquake detection and picking in the Alaska-Aleutian Trench;

· Constraining the timing of paleoseismic events in the Wasatch Fault Zone; and

· Investigation of earthquake sources in Central and Eastern US using geophysical and paleoseismological data.

A complete list of previously funded projects and reports can be found on the USGS EHP external research support website
