The NASA Headquarters has posted a grant opportunity titled "ROSES 2023: A.67 Earth Action: Supporting Climate Resilient Communities". This grant is in the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The funding instrument type is a Grant and there is no cost sharing or matching requirement. The grant is open to eligible applicants, which include organizations affiliated with an institution at and, in general, NASA provides funding only to U.S. institutions. The grant notice also mentions that some NRAs may be issued jointly with a non-U.S. organization, with additional special guidelines for non-U.S. participants. The close date for this grant is May 3, 2024. The grant is focused on supporting climate resilient communities. It aims to provide funding for projects and initiatives that contribute to building resilience against climate change impacts. The grant seeks proposals that address the challenges faced by communities in adapting to and mitigating the effects of climate change. The service/item being procured through this grant is the support and implementation of projects that promote climate resilience in communities.

She can be reached at (202) 358-2629 or via email at


Please note that this program requests optional Notices of Intent, which are due via NSPIRES by February 23, 2024 . See the full posting on NSPIRES for details. Proposers must retrieve the instructions document (zip file) associated with the application package for this opportunity as there is at least one required form that must be attached to the submitted proposal package. NOTICE: Amended December 14, 2023. This Amendment presents a new program element in ROSES-2023. NOIs are requested by February 23, 2024, and proposals are due by May 3, 2024. Pre-proposal teleconference will take place at 1 pm Eastern Time on March 1, 2024. Connection information will be posted under other documents on the NSPIRES page for this program element by February 16, 2024. The S/T/M Section of proposals must include a schedule, see Section 4.1. This program element is participating in the Inclusion Plan Pilot Program, see Section 4.3. This required Inclusion Plan will not be part of the adjectival ratings nor selection recommendations for this opportunity. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Science Mission Directorate (SMD) released its annual omnibus Research Announcement (NRA), Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2023 (OMB Approval Number 2700-0092, CFDA Number 43.001) on February 14, 2023. In this case "omnibus" means that this NRA has many individual program elements, each with its own due dates and topics. All together these cover the wide range of basic and applied supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences supported by SMD. Awards will be made as grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and inter- or intra-agency transfers, depending on the nature of the work proposed, the proposing organization, and/or program requirements. However, most extramural research awards deriving from ROSES will be grants, and many program elements of ROSES specifically exclude contracts, because contracts would not be appropriate for the nature of the work solicited. The typical period of performance for an award is three years, but some programs may allow up to five years and others specify shorter periods. In most cases, organizations of every type, Government and private, for profit and not-for-profit, domestic and foreign (with some caveats), may submit proposals without restriction on teaming arrangements. Tables listing the program elements and due dates (Tables 2 and 3), a table that provides a very top level summary of proposal contents (Table 1), and the full text of the ROSES-2023 "Summary of Solicitation", may all be found NSPIRES at This synopsis is associated with one of the individual program elements within ROSES, but this is a generic summary that is posted for all ROSES elements. For specific information on this particular program element download and read the PDF of the text of this program element by going to Tables 2 or 3 of this NRA at and, respectively, click the title of the program element of interest, a hypertext link will take you to a page for that particular program element. On that page, on the right side under "Announcement Documents" the link on the bottom will be to the PDF of the text of the call for proposals. For example, if one were interested in The Lunar Data Analysis Program (NNH23ZDA001N-LDAP) one would follow the link to the NSPIRES page for that program element and then to read the text of the call one would click on “C.8 Lunar Data Analysis (.pdf)” to download the text of the call. If one wanted to set it into the context of the goals, objectives and know the default rules for all elements within Appendix C, the planetary science division, one might download and read “C.1 Planetary Science Research Program Overview (.pdf)” from that same page. While the letters and numbers are different for each element within ROSES (A.12, B.7, etc.) the basic configuration is always the same, e.g., the letter indicates the Science Division (A is Earth Science, B is Heliophysics etc.) and whatever the letter, #1 is always the division overview. Frequently asked questions for ROSES are posted at Questions concerning general ROSES-2023 policies and procedures may be directed to Max Bernstein, Lead for Research, Science Mission Directorate, at, but technical questions concerning specific program elements should be directed to the point(s) of contact for that particular element, who may be found either at the end of the individual program element in the summary table of key information or on the web list of topics and points of contact at: Not all program elements are known at the time of the release of ROSES. To be informed of new program elements or amendments to this NRA, proposers may subscribe to: (1) The SMD mailing lists (by logging in at and checking the appropriate boxes under "Account Management" and "Email Subscriptions"), (2) The ROSES-2023 blog feed for amendments, clarifications, and corrections to at, and (3) The ROSES-2023 due date Google calendars (one for each science division). Instructions are at (link from the words due date calendar).
