The NOAA Climate Program Office 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. Information is available on grants.gov (https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/search-grants.html?keywords=NOAA-OAR-CPO-2020-2006076) and on the NOAA Climate Program Office site (https://cpo.noaa.gov/Funding-Opportunities/FY-2020-Notice-of-Funding-Opportunity). In FY20, approximately $13 million will be available for approximately 90 new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year with exceptions for larger awards, unless otherwise noted below. Federal funding for FY 2021 may be used to fund awards submitted under this Notice of Funding Opportunity. Current or previous grantees are eligible to apply for a new award that builds on, but does not replicate, activities covered in existing or previous awards. Current grantees should not apply for supplementary funding through this announcement.
