The purpose of this notice is to solicit proposals for cooperative agreements and/or grants between NOAA and partnering entities in the United States, implementing NOAA's National Height Modernization Program (NHMP) to support Regional Geospatial Modeling.
Proposals submitted in response
to this announcement should contribute to the beneficial public outcomes associated with the five priority issues which consist of enhancing infrastructure of geodetic control, coastal remote sensing data, terrestrial gravity measurements, and other physical datasets; developing models, tools, and guidelines to access that control and manipulate and analyze geodetic data; supporting education, capacity building, and technology transfer; coordinating through partnerships with local users (state and local governments, universities, and the public sector) and other partners in the region; sharing environmental data and information, collected and/or created under NOAA grants/cooperative agreements, making it visible, accessible, and independently understandable to general users, free of charge or at minimal cost, in a timely manner, except where limited by law, regulation, policy, or by security requirements.This competition is focused on the geography of the Gulf Coast states in response to NOAA's Height Modernization Plan and subsequent congressional appropriations.
The program priorities for this opportunity support NOAA's mission support goal of:
Resilient Coastal Communities and Economies.
Priorities addressing this mission goal also frequently are found to support NOAA's other mission goals:
Climate Adaptation and Mitigation; Weather-Ready Nation; Healthy Oceans.
In addition, these priorities support NOAA's Enterprise goals for Science and Technology, and Engagement.
