DOC Climate-Ready Workforce for Coastal States and Territories Competition – Due 02/13/24

Opportunity Title:

2023 Inflation Reduction Act Climate-Ready Workforce for Coastal States and Territories Competition


Department of Commerce

Opportunity Number:



A climate ready nation requires a climate ready workforce. NOAA will assist communities in coastal and Great Lakes states and territories so they may form partnerships that train workers and place them into jobs that enhance climate resilience. This competition is designed to meet the emerging and existing skills needs of employers while helping workers enter good jobs, so that together they may enhance climate resilience. NOAA envisions making between 10-20 awards under this competition, at amounts ranging from $500,000 to $10 million each.

NOAA is issuing this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for qualified organizations to form and support partnerships that will work collaboratively to support regional economies and their associated workforces by developing training programs that build in-demand skills, offering wraparound services that allow workers to successfully enroll in and complete training, and helping workers enter or advance into good jobs that enhance climate resilience. Wraparound services allow people to overcome barriers to participate in the program, especially individuals in underserved groups. Examples of wraparound services include transportation, childcare, elder care, and housing services. NOAA heavily prioritizes efforts to reach individuals from historically underserved communities.


Eligible applicants for the Climate Ready Workforce Competition must be located in coastal states or territories.

State governments, Tribal governments, Territorial governments, Local governments, Institutions of higher education, Non-profit organizations or associations
