The Chesapeake Bay Trust (Trust) seeks qualified contractors to complete two goals, 1) to better understand the most effective ways to increase behavioral adoption, and 2) to generate sediment and nutrient removal rates for behavior change interventions associated with six key residential water quality related behaviors (conservation landscaping, down the drain behaviors, pet waste pick-up and disposal, rain barrel installation and use, rain gardens, and tree planting). The provider will conduct literature reviews of these six behavioral practices to determine if sufficient social science data exist to create behavior change program protocols and either a) quantify sediment and nutrient removal rates for or b) to inform future social science research necessary to address identified data gaps for each one.
