A message from DOE to members of the APS Divisions of Astrophysics and Particles & Fields.

The DOE Office of High Energy Physics and the NSF Physics Division have jointly selected a portfolio of projects for the “second generation” of direct detection dark matter experiments. We are pleased to announce that the joint DOE/NSF second-generation program will include the LZ and SuperCDMS-SNOLAB experiments with their collective sensitivity to both low and high mass WIMPS, and ADMX-Gen2 to search for axions. It will also include a program of R&D to test and develop technologies for future experiments, consistent with the recent P5 recommendations. The agencies will work with the proponents to develop project plans that can achieve their compelling science goals as expeditiously as possible.
