Important information for proposers

All proposals must be submitted in accordance with the requirements specified in this funding opportunity and in the NSF Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG) that is in effect for the relevant due date to which the proposal is being submitted. It is the responsibility of the proposer to ensure that the proposal meets these requirements. Submitting a proposal prior to a specified deadline does not negate this requirement.


The intent of the Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF) solicitation is to provide the NSF-sponsored atmospheric sciences research community with access to specialized instrumentation for field and laboratory-based studies.  The CIF solicitation requests proposals from instrument and facility providers who will make their equipment available for community use through an NSF-defined request process.  Support will be provided for limited technician time, minor upgrades, and travel for outreach.  

The Community Instruments and Facilities (CIF) solicitation is intended to expand the suite of instruments and facilities available to the atmospheric science community supported by NSF. Proposals funded through this solicitation will promote research and education in areas currently supported by the Atmospheric Science programs.
