The Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) program, an interdisciplinary research and engagement program, is housed in the NOAA Climate Program Office’s (CPO’s) Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) Division. The AdSci program advances the knowledge, methods, and frameworks needed to move society beyond incremental adaptation toward more widespread, connected, and transformative adaptive pathways and resilience strategies with clear economic, social, cultural and environmental co-benefits.

Through the FY24 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), the AdSci Program is soliciting applications for two competitions:

Competition 1: Evidence-building, Evaluation, and Learning Approaches to Support Adaptation to a Changing Climate

  • Proposals can request up to $150,000 per year, for a maximum total of $300,000.00 total. Depending on the availability of funds, it is anticipated that 5-7 projects will be supported.

Competition 2: Developing a Social Science Research Agenda in Support of Adaptation and Resilience

  • Proposals can request a total budget in the range of $150,000- $300,000 (proposals should distribute the budget over the two year period to reflect the methodology used for the project). Depending on the availability of funds, it is anticipated that 1 project will be supported.
