Fiscal Year 2011 Climate Program Office: Changing climate confronts society with significant economic, health, safety, and national security challenges. NOAA has important responsibilities in conducting observations, research, prediction, and information management for the purpose of understanding and responding to climate and global change. The NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) manages the competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science to advance understanding of Earth's climate system and its atmospheric, oceanic, land, and snow and ice components. This science contributes to knowledge about how climate variability and change affect our health, economy, and well-being. The CPO supports research that is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. The CPO also provides strategic guidance and oversight for the agency's climate science and services programs. In this connection, the CPO is helping lead the development of a proposed NOAA Climate Service; details about the proposed Service can be found at ( The CPO is in the process of restructuring its grants programs that will go into effect with this announcement of opportunity. The grants activities are now organized within four Programs: Climate Observations and Monitoring, Earth System Science, Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections, and Climate and Societal Interactions. In addition, the CPO announces an opportunity in FY 2011 that cuts across these four Programs to deal with Improving NOAA's Climate Services for the Coastal Zone. In FY 2011, approximately $21 million will be available for new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards ($600K-$700K). Investigators are highly encouraged to visit the CPO Web site ( for general program information prior to submitting applications.
