The 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) is a national program to help generate new high resolution elevation data to serve multiple applications. For the past several years, 3DEP has issued an annual Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to solicit interest in partnerships to generate new lidar for public use and benefit.
This is a reminder that 3DEP is currently accepting proposals to request funding assistance for lidar elevation data. The FY17/18 BAA was released in August and provides details on how to apply for federal funds to assist state and local governments, Federal agencies, tribes, academic institutions, and the private sector.
Proposals submitted no later than the deadline of Friday, October 20, 2017 will receive first review and award of funds if selected. Although the BAA is open for the entire fiscal year and proposals are welcome anytime, groups applying by the initial deadline above will receive first consideration for funds.
