Preliminary inquiries encouraged as to the general need for the type of research effort contemplated. Requested to submit whitepaper prior to submission of complete proposal.

The Department of Defense offers four recurring grant programs that benefit new investigators, including opportunities through the Office of Naval Research (ONR), The Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While broad areas of research are supported, the agency will usually evaluate the application in terms of agency need. DoD agencies typically publish lists of desired topic areas.

This program is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. Nationals, and Permanent Resident Aliens holding tenure-track positions at U.S. institutions of higher education, who have held their graduate degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) for fewer than five years at the time of application. Faculty at an institution of higher education which does not designate any faculty appointments as "tenure track" are eligible if that fact is so indicated in the proposal, and the supporting letter from the institute states that the faculty member submitting the proposal will be considered for a permanent appointment.

Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI)

Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Varies
The AFRI program is the USDA’s largest competitive grants program. AFRI grants cover a broad range of topics touching on areas as diverse as agriculture economics and rural communities, organismal genetic sequencing, renewable energy, water management, food security, and of course, food production. AFRI grants generally use similar criteria for determining eligibility for “new investigator” grants.
