Climate Program Office FY2022

CPO Climate Program Office supports competitive research through four major program areas: Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM); Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI); Communication, Education and Engagement (CEE); and the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). Through this announcement, CPO is seeking applications for eight individual competitions in FY22. Several of these competitions are relevant to high-priority climate risk areas. CPO is organizing some of its activities around these areas to improve science understanding and/or capabilities that result in user-driven outcomes. Four climate risk areas of particular interest to CPO are: Coastal Inundation, Marine Ecosystems, Water Resources, and Extreme Heat.
