Funding Opportunity Title: Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) Program
Announcement Type: Initial
Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-OAR-CPO-2017-2005017
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 11.431, Climate and Atmospheric Research

The NOAA Climate Program Office’s (CPO) Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program supports research teams that conduct innovative, interdisciplinary, user-inspired, and regionally relevant research that informs resource management and public policy. CPO funds a network of RISA teams across the United States (US) and Pacific Islands, which are a model for interdisciplinary science and assessment.

In FY 2017, RISA is holding two competitions for research funding focused on three geographies. We are soliciting proposals for: 1) Competition 1: a RISA team focused on the Arizona/New Mexico region of the US; and 2) Competition 2: a RISA team focused on either the California/Nevada region of the US or on the Midwestern region of the US. We estimate that $3-$3.5 million over five years will be available for each competition, pending available funding and budget appropriations. Awards will be at a funding level of $600,000-$700,000 per year for up to 5 years.

Please download and carefully read the RISA Information Sheet for more detailed information. NOAA is accepting individual applications for 2 competitions under the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments Program
