NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO), a part of NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), has awarded $38.8 million for 78 new projects* in FY 2017. The projects — ranging from advancing the understanding and prediction of drought to building resilience in coastal communities — will expand the breadth and scope of NOAA’s current climate research and offers opportunities for NOAA to collaborate with outside experts and new stakeholders.
NOAA's Adopt-a-Drifter website has been upgraded.
CPO is releasing its 2016 Annual Report, which gives an overview of FY16 achievements and highlights the great work done by CPO Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society's ability to plan and respond.
CPO’s programs are seeking applications for 7 individual competitions in FY 2018 for an estimated $10 million available and approximately 100 new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards. Visit cpo.noaa.gov/GrantsandProjects.aspx for more detailed information and instructions.
The Lagrangian Drifter Laboratory at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography is releasing a new type of drifter that will fill a unique role in the Global Ocean Observing System and in satellite validation and weather prediction.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
