MAPP Programmatic Webinar: The MAPP Program and its FY 2017 Funding Opportunities

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. We will close the webinar with a Q&A session, in which we will answer your questions of general interest in real time via the chat function in WebEx.
