NSF RAPID Awards

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Rapid Response Research (RAPID) grants are utilized when there is a severe urgency with regard to availability of or access to data, facilities or specialized equipment, including quick-response research on natural or anthropogenic disasters and other similar unanticipated events. This page includes a list of recent NSF RAPIDS Awards from the Human, Disasters, and the Build Environment (HDBE) program.
