This FY24 NOFO is being executed through CPO’s Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM) Division. Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for six individual competitions in FY24. Several of these competitions are relevant to the suite of urgent climate-driven societal challenges and risks faced by our Nation that CPO aims to address. These include water availability and quality, marine and freshwater ecosystems, coastal changes and inundation, cascading hazards from drought and extreme heat like wildfire, and air quality issues, and climate mitigation (more information about CPO Societal Challenges and Risks framework can be found here: https://www.cpo.noaa.gov/Initiatives/Climate-Risk-Areas-Initiative). Prior to submitting applications, investigators are highly encouraged to learn more about CPO and its programs, as well as specific program priorities for FY24. In addition, interactions, partnerships, or collaborations with NOAA OAR Laboratories and Cooperative Institutes are encouraged.

In FY24, approximately $9 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, unless otherwise noted below.

NOAA is accepting individual applications for 6 competitions.

Application Deadline: Letters of intent (LOIs) for the CVP and MAPP competitions are due on 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on August 18th, 2023. LOIs for the AC4 competition should be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 11th, 2023. Full applications for all competitions must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, November 17th, 2023.
