The overall theme of this funding announcement is improving weather, water, and climate services to historically underserved and socially vulnerable communities. As such, NOAA/NWS is seeking research proposals focused on developing methodologies, metrics, risk assessments, and/or enhanced services to improve service to historically underserved and socially vulnerable communities. This includes research on improved communication methods to better inform special-interest populations with unique needs, such as the elderly, inner-city communities and underserved rural areas. It also includes research on how people’s interest in, access to, and interpretation of weather information, as well as their decisions and actions in response, are affected by factors such as their specific social or physical context, prior experiences, or cultural background.
