FRDAC Letters of Support

The AWFCG Fire Research, Development, and Applications Committee (FRDAC) encourages researchers to consider projects that address topics on the Research Task List. Although no funding is allocated specifically for projects, researchers are encouraged to submit proposals to various funding sources (e.g., Joint Fire Science Program, National Science Foundation, etc). Funds may periodically become available through the Alaska Wildland Fire Coordinating Group (AWFCG) or directly through individual agencies.

How do I get a letter of support for my project?

  • Review the list of AWFCG fire research needs and identify if your project or proposal addresses an AWFCG Fire Research need. 
  • Contact a FRDAC member or FRDAC Chair to request a letter of support.
  • Prepare a write up or draft proposal to provide to FRDAC for review.
  • If a letter will be written, the letter will be sent for approval and signature by the AWFCG Chair. 

Contact the FDRAC Chair to request a letter of support.

FRDAC encourages you to submit your request 3-4 weeks prior to the need for the letter of support.
