NOAA's Climate Program Office Announces New Funding Opportunity

Learn more about the Office's Fiscal Year 2020 grant competitions

  • 24 July 2019

NOAA Research’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is pleased to announce that its Fiscal Year 2020 grant competitions are now open.

This year’s solicitation includes 10 competitions to advance understanding and prediction of climate to help Americans plan for and respond to risks and impacts. Approximately $13 million will be available for about 90 new awards, pending budget appropriations, with most awards funded between $50,000 and $300,000 per year. The competitions cover topics such as:

  • understanding the urban atmosphere in a changing climate,
  • characterizing and anticipating U.S. drought,
  • understanding and modeling climate impacts on fish stocks and fisheries,
  • explaining extreme events, and
  • helping communities and businesses build resilience to climate-related hazards.

 

The rising frequency and severity of extreme weather and climate events are taking a heavy toll on the U.S. and worldwide. Since 1980, the annual number of billion-dollar disasters and total damages in the United States have roughly quadrupled. By funding high-priority climate science through four major program areas, CPO provides actionable information to ensure better decision-making and enable people, businesses, and the environment to thrive in the face of a changing climate and its impacts.

CPO’s competitive research program areas include Earth System Science and Modeling, Climate and Societal Interactions, Communication Education and Engagement, and the National Integrated Drought Information System. Prior to submitting applications, investigators are highly encouraged to learn more about CPO and its programs, as well as specific program priorities for FY 2020.

For details about the competitions, application information, CPO’s programs, and the names and contact information of relevant Competition Managers, please visit the FY 2020 Notice of Funding Opportunity page.
