Awards made under this FOA will initially support a milestone-driven, planning phase (UG3) of one to two years, with possible transition to an implementation phase (UH3) of up to four years duration (five years total for the two phases). UG3 projects that have met the scientific milestone and feasibility requirements may transition to the UH3 phase. The UG3/UH3 application must be submitted as a single application, following the instructions described in this FOA.
