Funding Opportunity: NOAA Climate Program Office FY 2014

Letters of Intent Deadline:  5 p.m. Eastern Time, September 10, 2013
Final Application Deadline:  5 p.m. Eastern Time, November 14, 2013

NOAA is accepting individual applications for nine competitions, organized around the Climate Program Office's Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Earth System Science (ESS); Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP); and Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) Programs.

From the full funding opportunity:

"We estimate that $11 million will be available through this Announcement in FY 2014 for approximately 100 new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $200,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards."

The competitions include:

  • Data Sets and Indicators
  • Paleoclimate Proxy/Multi-proxy Reconstructions and Analyses
  • Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP): Improved Understanding of Tropical Pacific Processes, Biases, and Climatology
  • Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4): Observation Constraints on Sources and Sinks of Aerosols and Greenhouse Gases
  • Research to Advance Understanding, Monitoring, and Prediction of Drought
  • Climate Test Bed Research to Advance NOAA's Operational Systems for Climate Prediction
  • Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP): Climate Extreme Event Preparedness, Planning, and Adaptation
  • Coping with Drought Initiative in support of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)
  • Coastal and Ocean Climate Application (COCA): Ecosystem Services for a Resilient Coast

The Climate Program Office was established in October 2005 to oversee the agency's climate portfolio and to manage the competitive research program that funds high-priority science to advance the understanding and prediction of the Earth system and associated climate processes. CPO also supports multi-disciplinary research and assessments designed to foster the effective use of climate information for informed decision making.
