Aug 21,2020

Link your project to HIWeather for increased visibility

The Steering Group (SG) of the High Impact Weather (HIWeather) Project provides endorsement for projects, programs and initiatives that plan to contribute to the goals of HIWeather as outlined in the HIWeather Implementation Plan.

Projects seeking endorsement through HIWeather may either be funded or in the process of seeking funding.

For more information and Endorsement form : HIWeather Endorsement
