Approximately $15 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 proposals will support Sea Grant program projects aimed at improving the resilience of flood-vulnerable communities through equitable and inclusive stormwater and floodplain management. Water infrastructure improvement is necessary in the coming decade to prevent flooding along the shores of and within the Great Lakes watershed, especially among marginalized communities.
The virtual workshop aimed to advance the state of climate modeling, translation, and integration into climate adaptation efforts across the Great Lakes region. The Great Lakes Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) team will walk webinar attendees through the workshop and some of the key findings.
Join NOAA and the Water Research Foundation, along with four water management practitioners, to learn about reevaluating stormwater design and flooding management. These talks are highlights from the recent workshop series, “Climate and Weather Information for Small- and Medium-size Water Utilities.”
The webinar will focus on climate adaptation investments and strategies to build more resilient communities, as well as the challenges and costs of incorporating climate considerations into local planning efforts.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
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.
