FUNDING OPPORTUNITY

WPO supports the majority of its competitively-funded research through an annual Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). The NOFO contains information about which WPO research programs are actively soliciting proposals, and the ground rules and key deadlines for each funding competition.


ANNUAL  ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Research funded by WPO is necessary to inform the timely and accurate forecasts and warnings that make it possible to save lives, reduce property damage, and enhance the national economy. 


WPO PROGRAMS

The NOAA Weather Program Office works closely with the National Weather Service (NWS) to develop and transition weather research to improve knowledge about tropical cyclones, severe storms, extreme precipitation, air pollution, and social science—and to integrate weather, water, and climate forecasting and mitigation
