CLIMAS RISA helps produce first ever Hopi Quarterly Drought Status Report

In partnership with the Hopi Department of Natural Resources, Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) – a RISA program – has helped generate the first ever Hopi Quarterly Drought Status report.

The two-page report outlines current conditions of the Hopi Reservation. The report covers range condition, precipitation totals, and drought conditions in the Southwest.

According to the report's Southwest Outlook/Conclusions section, there is "no immediate relief in sight" for the drought conditions across the Southwest. "Warm and dry conditions are expected to continue through the spring season, with the potential for further expansion and intensification of drought impacts across the region."

In this webinar, we will present on the OAR Climate Program Office, Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program and its FY 2017 funding opportunities, and hold a Q&A session on program, competitions, and application process. We will provide an overview of the program, including our function within the Climate Program Office and NOAA, our research focus areas, and ways that we partner with other programs within and outside of NOAA. We will describe the two new FY 2017 competitions, which have just been published at cpo.noaa.gov and released on Grants.gov. Finally, we will discuss the process of applying to MAPP competitions and will include personal tips for putting together a strong application.
