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.
LOIs Deadline: January 8, 2021 | Full applications for Competition 1: February 15, 2021
The Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program supports the development of knowledge, expertise, and abilities of decision makers to plan and prepare for climate variability and change. Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for two competitions in FY21: 1) a competition for regional RISA teams in nine U.S. regions, and 2) a competition for collaborative planning activities in the Southeast and U.S. Caribbean.
LOIs Deadline: December 9, 2020| Full applications for Competition 2: February 8, 2021 | Full applications for Competition 1: February 16, 2021
“From using machine learning to develop critical atmospheric datasets to creating an experimental system for rapidly assessing causes of extreme events, these new awards will expedite climate science discoveries and build the library of resilience solutions needed to protect all sectors of our economy and environment.”
NOAA Research’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is pleased to announce that its Fiscal Year 2021 grant competitions are now open.
The Initiative aims to create more cohesion across CPO’s climate and decision science programs, while strengthening partnerships inside and outside of NOAA, to ultimately help advance climate science understanding and reduce impacts in a set of four climate-related risk areas.
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.
