The near-Earth object survey, follow-up, and characterization projects at IfA play key roles in NASA's NEO Observations program and in the broader activities of NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office. I will put the projects into context and give an update on recent developments such as the interagency National NEO Strategy and Action Plan, PDCO missions status, as well as other mission encounters underway giving us a close look at some of the players.
