The first opportunity invites letters of intent for Climate Program Office Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) funding. This opportunity includes 10 competitions with approximately 90 anticipated awards.

CPO supports competitive research through three major program areas: Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM); Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI); and Communication, Education and Engagement (CEE). Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for 10 individual competitions in FY20. Prior to submitting applications, investigators are highly encouraged to learn more about CPO and its programs, as well as specific program priorities for FY20. In addition, interactions, partnerships, or collaborations with NOAA Laboratories and Cooperative Institutes are encouraged.

Competitions included in this funding opportunity include:

  • Climate and changing ocean conditions: Process research and modeling to support the needs of NOAA Fisheries
  • Characterizing and anticipating U.S. drought’s complex interactions
  • Modeling climate impacts on the predictability of fisheries and other living marine resources
  • Constraining models’ climate sensitivity
  • Developing terrestrial-, marine-, and ice-atmosphere boundary layer data sets through collaborations between observations and modeling communities
  • Explaining climate extreme events: Developing a rapid assessment capability and understanding the causes and mechanisms of extreme events
