This year, finally, after several years of negotiation and administrative and operational adaptations, we were able to propose and obtain a 3-year funding grant (cooperative agreement) through the ANSS (Advanced National Seismic System). Though this grant supports O&M for only 9 NHFN stations, it is more stable in the long-term, allowing for long-term planning and action to take place. It has also allowed us to fold the 5 MPBO stations into the network, which provide an excellent complement to the NHFN's borehole seismic coverage of the Bay Area. This year, we have also obtained a 3-year funding agreement with Caltrans for the O&M of 10 additional NHFN stations, bringing the total number of stations with long-term O&M support to 19 (14 currently operational and 5 near operational). We anticipate future long-term O&M support for the new planned NHFN stations to also receive long-term Caltrans support.
