NOAA’s Office of Weather and Air Quality (OWAQ) is soliciting proposals for weather, air quality, and earth-system modeling research reflecting multiple science objectives spanning time scales from hours to seasons, and from weather and water observations and earth system modeling to social and behavioral science.  There will be three grant competitions from this notification valued at approximately $7,000,000 as follows:
1) Joint Technology Transfer Initiative (JTTI),
2) Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment - Southeast U.S. (VORTEX-SE), and
3) Climate Testbed (CTB).

For each of the three competitions within this Fiscal Year 2020 funding opportunity, full applications must be received by 5:00 pm Eastern Time (ET) on November 20, 2019. Applications received after this deadline will not be considered.
Pre-proposal Letters of Intent (LOIs) are being solicited by two competitions (see the full announcement for details). For these competitions, LOIs are strongly encouraged and must be received by 5:00 pm ET on September 17, 2019, in order to receive a pre-proposal review. Grant period length and recommended start dates for the funded projects will vary with each competition as listed in Section II.B “Project/Award Period”.
