Today, the Department of Commerce and NOAA announced the availability of $100 million to support climate resilience projects through U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) Regional Associations as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda. This funding is from the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest climate investment in history, and comes one day after the first-ever White House Summit on Building Climate Resilient Communities.

These funds will be available to 11 U.S. IOOS Regional Associations to strengthen operations through investments that enable them to recapitalize and modernize infrastructure and sustain services that address climate resilience needs and priorities, particularly in frontline and underserved communities. Funding will enhance national and regional coastal ocean observing systems while prioritizing climate resilience services and equitable service delivery. Projects will also advance the role of IOOS in the New Blue Economy by recapitalizing and modernizing technologies and advancing the IOOS ocean information technology network.
