3D Elevation Program (3DEP)

FY19/20 USGS Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP)

The FY19/20 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) was released September 9, 2019. Information and contacts are posted to Fed Biz Opps (Reference Number 140G0119R0029) and to Grants.gov (Opportunity Number G19AS00124).  

The BAA provides detailed information on how to partner with the USGS and other Federal agencies to acquire high-quality 3D Elevation data. Applicants may contribute funds toward a USGS lidar data acquisition activity via the Geospatial Products and Services Contracts (GPSC) or they may request 3DEP funds toward a lidar data acquisition activity where the requesting partner is the acquiring authority. Federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. Proposals are due by COB on November 8, 2019 and awards will be announced starting December 2019 and continuing through FY2020 subject to available funding.

► Questions on the BAA can be submitted to gs_baa@usgs.gov
