Climate Variability and Human Health, FY 2004 Joint Announcement
DATES: Pre-proposals must be received by OGP no later than 5 p.m. eastern time February 27, 2004. Full proposals must be received at the Office of Global Programs no later than 5 p.m. eastern time April 23, 2004.
With the intent of stimulating integrated multidisciplinary studies and enhancing institutional collaboration, the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) announce our interest in receiving research proposals to improve understanding of the human health consequences related to climate variability and enhance the integration of useful climate information into public health policy and decisionmaking. This joint announcement is intended to support the formation of multidisciplinary teams working in close collaboration on integrated projects to illuminate the human, biological, and physical pathways by which climate may affect human health, and which explore the potential for applying climate and environmental information toward the goal of improved public health. We are also interested in understanding how the human health impacts and responses, on shorter time scales (i.e. seasonal, annual, decadal), affect our knowledge of vulnerability and adaptation to longerterm changes in the climate system.
Climate Variability and Human Health; joint announcement FY 2004,
Electronic Access: Applicants should read the full text of the full
funding opportunity announcement, which can be accessed at OGP's Web
site: http://www.ofa.noaa.gov/ [sim]amd/SOLINDEX.HTML. This announcement will also be
available through Grants.gov at: http://. http://www.ogp.noaa.gov/grants/appkit.htm.
Funding Availability: NOAA and NSF believe that research on the relationship between climate variability and human health will benefit significantly from a strong partnership with outside investigators. An estimated $1 million may be available for FY04. Current plans assume that over 50% of the total resources provided through this announcement will support extramural efforts, particularly those involving the broad academic community. Funding may be provided by NOAA or NSF. In previous years, three to seven grants have been awarded ranging from $50,000 to $250,000 per year. Past or current grantees funded under this announcement are eligible to apply for a new award which builds on previous activities or areas of research not covered in the previous award. Current grantees should not request supplementary funding for ongoing research through this announcement. Proposals may be for up to a threeyear period. It is anticipated that the funding instrument for most of the extramural awards will be a grant, however, in some cases, if NOAA will be substantially involved in the implementation of the project, the funding instrument may be a cooperative agreement.
