Today is the deadline for letters of intent for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) competitive funding of two new climate and health research centers to accomplish President Biden’s goals of heat health and environmental justice.

“NOAA is seeking applicants to build virtual centers of excellence in the field of heat health,” said NOAA Administrator Rick Spinrad. “These new centers will advance President Biden’s environmental justice goals by improving services to disadvantaged communities that are overburdened by extreme heat, heat waves, and related climate-fueled conditions.”

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS), which is led by NOAA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and managed by NOAA’s Climate Program Office, is managing the funding competition. Full applications are due on October 16.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration as they seek improvements in heat health and environmental justice.
  • For Administrator Spinrad as he heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
  • For Director Wayne Higgins as he oversees the NOAA Climate Program Office and facilitates the awarding of the competitive funding.
