FY2022 NWS Office of Science and Technology Integration: Unified Forecast System Funding Opportunity

The Office of Science and Technology Integration is soliciting research proposals to support NOAA’s development of the community-based, coupled, comprehensive earth modeling system, the Unified Forecast System (UFS). The UFS is designed to provide more accurate forecast guidance through operational numerical weather prediction applications. These applications span local and global domains, and predictive time scales from sub-hourly to seasonal.  

Full application packages for all competitions must be submitted via Grants.gov no later than 5:00 PM Eastern Time (ET) on February 7, 2022. Expected project start date is September 1, 2022.

Pre-proposal Letters of Intent (LOIs) are strongly encouraged and must be received by email to nws.sti.modeling.team@noaa.gov by 5:00 PM Eastern Time (ET) on December 6, 2021.
