NOAA's Climate Program Office is currently soliciting proposals for FY 2018 for the International Research and Applications Project (IRAP): Decision Support Research on Climate-Sensitive Health Risks (in partnership with the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments RISA program).

IRAP proposals are being solicited for two different foci.

  • Focus area 1: We estimate that awards for transboundary work involving RISA teams will be up to $350,000 per year, for a period of 1-2 years, for a total amount of $1.2 million, pending budget appropriations.
  • Focus area 2: We estimate that funding for the development of integrated global maps, tools and information will be on the order of $300,000 per year for a period of 1-2 years, pending the availability of funds. Only 1-2 awards are anticipated for this second foci.

This webinar will discuss the process for FY18 IRAP competition, as well as what makes a strong proposal. We encourage the submission of questions in advance and through the chat on the day of the webinar. Questions should be general and avoid reference to specific projects.

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 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
