On June 5, it was noted at the NSF Environmental Research and Education (ERE) Advisory Committee that the Civic Innovation Challenge (CIVIC) program expects to add sub-tracks related to COVID-19 to the existing Communities and Mobility and Resilience to Natural Disasters tracks. The Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) Directorate leads this program and CISE Assistant Director Margaret Martonosi noted that NSF is likely to move back the July 1 deadline for CIVIC.
