Additional FY23 awards will be added to this page as they are finalized. 

One of the funded Climate Futures projects will enhance our understanding of how extreme snow loads and rain-on-snow events evolve in a changing climate in the contiguous United States. CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections Program (MAPP)  announced $7.2 million in funding to external partners and NOAA collaborators to improve climate projections that will help communities, businesses and industries better plan for the future. The projects aim to produce climate projections multiple years and decades in advance to help communities take actions to reduce damage and losses from future weather and climate extremes.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office announced a total annual award of $11.4 million in Fiscal Year 2023 funding to support 24 new, innovative, and impactful projects that will improve our nation’s resilience at a critical time in the fight against the climate crisis.

Over the next year, universities, other research institutions, and agency partners across the United States will conduct newly-funded projects in partnership with NOAA programs, laboratories, and research centers. CPO is committed to funding these awards for three years, conditional on appropriations.

CPO’s peer-reviewed competitive funding process ensures that proposals chosen to receive funding meet high standards of scientific rigor, quality, relevance to societal challenges, NOAA’s mission, and equity. Research inside and outside of NOAA is supported. These projects conducted by external partners expand the reach of NOAA’s mission and the frontiers of scientific inquiry. While CPO funds new projects each fiscal year, CPO continues to support multi-year initiatives funded in previous years.
