CPO Announces new Extreme Heat Risk Initiative FY2021 Funding Opportunity

Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for a single competition in FY21. This competition supports a high-priority climate risk area that CPO is organizing some of its activities around to improve science understanding and/or capabilities that result in user-driven outcomes. This risk area, focused on extreme heat, is one of four initial risk areas; the others are coastal inundation, marine ecosystems, and water resources. 

Programs: NIHHIS

LOIs Deadline:  January 8, 2021 | Full applications for Competition 1: February 15, 2021
