Summary

The Department of Commerce has posted a grant opportunity titled "Climate Program Office (CPO) Adaptation Sciences Program FY2024". This grant is in the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The eligible applicants for this grant are institutions of higher education, other nonprofits, commercial organizations, international and regional organizations, and state, local and Indian tribal governments. Federal agencies or institutions are not eligible to receive Federal assistance under this notice, but may be identified as partners in the proposals. The purpose of this grant is to support the Adaptation Sciences (AdSci) program, which is an interdisciplinary research and engagement program housed in the NOAA Climate Program Office's (CPO's) Climate and Societal Interactions (CSI) Division. The AdSci program aims to advance 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. The program achieves this through a combination of dedicated partnerships that support capacity building and engagement activities, as well as competitive research awards designed to address key knowledge and information needs. The AdSci program supports work both within and outside of the United States. The FY24 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the AdSci Program is soliciting applications for two competitions. The first competition is focused on evidence-building, evaluation, and learning approaches to support adaptation to a changing climate. The second competition is focused on developing a social science research agenda to support adaptation and resilience. The grant has an award ceiling of $300,000 and an award floor of $150,000. It is expected that there will be a total of 7 awards given. The close date for applications is March 20, 2024, and the archive date is April 19, 2024. For more information about the AdSci program, interested parties can visit the website at https://cpo.noaa.gov/AdSci. For specific questions about the grant application process, individuals can contact Lisa Vaughan, the AdSci Competition Manager, at Lisa.Vaughan@noaa.gov. For general questions, they can contact Diane Brown, the CPO Grants Manager, at diane.brown@noaa.gov.

Description

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. This work is conducted through a combination of dedicated partnerships that support capacity building and engagement activities, and competitive research awards designed to address key knowledge and information needs. Given the global complexities involved in climate impacts and society’s adaptive strategies, the AdSci program supports work both within and outside of the United States. AdSci has two core objectives: *Developing an understanding of key drivers and conditions that shape and enable adaptation across multiple temporal and spatial scales, in particular geographies and settings where this knowledge can be practically applied to efforts to reduce risk and enhance resilience in equitable ways; and *Identifying key aspects of and promoting opportunities for the use of scientific information to best support preparedness and planned adaptation of high value to social and economic goals.Learn more about AdSci at https://cpo.noaa.gov/AdSci.Through the FY24 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), the AdSci Program is soliciting applications for two competitions: 1. Evidence-building, Evaluation and Learning Approaches to Support Adaptation to a Changing Climate 2. Developing a Social Science Research Agenda to Support Adaptation and Resilience
