Open Solicitations:

Research and Technology:

BETO’s Conversion Technologies Program supports R&D in technologies for converting biomass feedstocks into finished liquid transportation fuels—such as renewable gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel along with co-products or chemical intermediates.

The objective of this FOA is to provide new, one-time, short-term, small “seed” funding for external collaborations with the GPS Program supported CRFs and increase participation at and productivity of these facilities.

The Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) supports genome-scale research that addresses challenging questions of biological, societal and economic importance. PGRP encourages the development of innovative tools, technologies, and resources that empower a broad plant research community to answer scientific questions on a genome-wide scale.

Since 2004, the U.S. Congress has made funds available to the Borlaug Fellowship Program to advance USDA/FAS’s agricultural research goals of promoting collaborative programs among agricultural professionals of eligible countries, agricultural professionals of the United States, the international agricultural research system, and United States entities conducting research by providing Fellowships to individuals from eligible countries who specialize or have experience in agricultural education, research, extension, or other related fields.

The Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS) Core Programs Track supports research to understand why organisms are structured the way they are and function as they do. Proposals are welcomed in all of the core scientific program areas supported by the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS).

This program seeks to develop the intellectual capital enabling the U.S. to smoothly and quickly transition to effective new ways of using and managing the radio and optical spectrum after the end of the current spectrum era of long-term exclusive-use license auctions, thereby sustaining and advancing the social, economic, scientific, and U.S. national leadership benefits derived from the electromagnetic spectrum.

Environment and Energy:

Through this FOA, the DOE Office of Indian Energy will continue its efforts to maximize the deployment of clean energy solutions for the benefit of American Indian and Alaska Native communities and to help build the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to implement those clean energy solutions.

The FOA’s topic areas are of mutual interest for both the EPA’s priority in the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program and DOE BETO’s priority in the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grand Challenge as well as SDI’s priority in supporting four demonstration-scale integrated biorefineries by 2030.

The EPA’s goals for the Clean Ports Program are to:

(1) build a foundation for ports across the country to transition to fully ZE operations, positioning ports to serve as a catalyst for transformational change across the freight sector;

(2) reduce mobile source pollution in near- port communities, especially disadvantaged communities; and

(3) help ensure that meaningful community engagement and emissions reduction planning are port industry standard practices.

Community Development and Infrastructure:

The goals of the Program are to reduce highway congestion, reduce economic and environmental costs associated with that congestion, including transportation emissions, and optimize existing highway capacity and usage of highway and transit systems.

The Pipeline Safety Information Grants to Communities: Technical Assistance Grants (TAG) program (Assistance Listing 20.710) provides funding to local communities and groups of individuals for technical assistance related to pipeline safety.

The SDP grant program fosters improved damage prevention programs by supporting projects such as the enforcement of state excavation damage prevention laws, stakeholder education about digging safely, technologies to improve efficiencies, and other related excavation safety initiatives.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Office on Smoking and Health is announcing the opportunity to apply for funds for a competitive, non-research cooperative agreement aimed at building the capacity of state and territorial tobacco control programs and their partners to translate the science of tobacco cessation into public health interventions.

This NOFO aims to address the systems-level, environmental, and social drivers of disparities by leveraging and expanding strategic partnerships to implement EXHALE strategies.

The purpose of this program is to strengthen organizational capacity to respond to the changing health care landscape and increase access to high-quality HIV primary health care services for low-income and underserved people with HIV.

Forecasted Opportunities:

The California Energy Commission (CEC) will host a remote-access workshop to discuss and receive feedback on a draft funding concept to provide technical assistance for applications pursuing state and federal funding for zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure. The proposed solicitation is intended to support potential applicants including California Native American Tribes, low-income, and disadvantaged communities access funding for ZEV infrastructure.

The Rural eConnectivity Program (ReConnect) Program provides loans, grants, and loan/grant combinations to facilitate broadband deployment in rural areas. In facilitating the expansion of broadband services and infrastructure, the program will fuel long-term economic development and opportunities in rural America.

Requests for Information or Comment:

The Department of Energy (DOE or the Department)’s Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains is issuing this RFI to notify parties of its potential interest in initiating a Manufacturing Capital Connector (MCC) to support applicants seeking clean energy manufacturing funding opportunities and/or tax credits.

The California Energy Commission (CEC) is seeking feedback on a Draft Solicitation Concept for Retrofitting with Innovative Building Envelope Solutions to be issued through the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) 2021-2025 Investment Plan.

General Information and Updates:

The purpose of the REAP TAG Program is to enable Applicants to provide technical assistance to Agricultural Producers and Rural Small Businesses applying to REAP.

Grant Management Associates has years of experience with opportunities like these. Contact us today for a consultation.
