The 2004 Cooperative Agreements Program (CAP) will open for submissions on or about April 16, 2004. This year, the CAP is jointly sponsored by the FGDC, Geospatial One-Stop (GOS), and the US Geological Survey on behalf of The National Map.

The FGDC, Geospatial One-Stop (GOS), and The National Map are national geospatial initiatives with Federal leadership that share the common goal of building the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). The NSDI consists of the technologies, policies, and people necessary to effectively discover, share, maintain and use digital geographic data throughout all sectors of the geospatial data community in the distributed electronic environment.

The CAP provides seed funds to engage organizations in building the components of the NSDI, which include the development of metadata, strengthening geospatial coordination, use of OpenGIS web mapping and web feature services, and encouraging participation in The National Map. A total of $1,500,000 is available for funding this year. Approximately 50 awards are expected. The CAP is open to all U.S. organizations and seeks new participants.

The proposal submission period will begin on or about April 16 and close on or about June 4, 2004. Information describing the 2004 CAP will be found on-line at the FGDC and websites. For more information contact David Painter at (703) 648-5513 or and visit the website.
