Open Solicitations:


Research and Education:

This solicitation is offered for support of two types of projects, a TCUP Hub and faculty-led topical interest groups (TIGs).

The Use-Inspired Acceleration of Protein Design (USPRD) initiative will accelerate the translation of novel approaches to protein design and enable new applications of importance to the U.S. bioeconomy.

 This solicitation aims to reduce building dependency on grid electricity, increase energy efficiency of HVAC equipment operating on DC power, decrease burdens – and enhance access – to solar and heat pump adoption, and create business and manufacturing opportunities for those who develop DC HVAC nanogrid modules.



Community Development:

Funds for the fiscal year (FY) 2024 SS4A grant program are to support planning and demonstration activities, as well as projects and strategies to prevent death and serious injury on roads and streets involving all roadway users, including pedestrians; bicyclists; public transportation, personal conveyance, and micromobility users; motorists; and commercial vehicle operators.

This competitive program helps rural communities use advanced telecommunications technology to connect to each other - and the world - overcoming the effects of remoteness and low population density.

The RFSP supports partnerships that connect public and private resources to plan and develop local or regional food systems. The RFSP focuses on building and strengthening local or regional food economy viability and resilience, and this includes pandemic response and recovery.



Environment and Energy:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the launch of the Electronics Scrap Recycling Advancement Prize. This three-phase competition will award up to $4 million to competitors to substantially increase the production and use of critical materials recovered from electronic scrap—or e-scrap.

Under this competitive grant program, CAL FIRE purchases or accepts donations of conservation easements or fee title of productive forest lands to encourage their long-term conservation.

The American-Made Upskill Prize for the Solar Manufacturing Workforce (Upskill Prize) is a multi-million-dollar competition designed to accelerate the expansion of the U.S. solar manufacturing workforce and equip workers with the skills necessary to revitalize the domestic solar module manufacturing supply chain.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing a two-year competitive funding opportunity for awards to eligible entities to provide technical assistance (TA) to businesses to encourage the development and implementation of source reduction practices also known as pollution prevention or “P2”.

These grants will be awarded for eligible project activities, which include the following: Community building decarbonization planning, municipal building decarbonization planning, advancing municipal operations to support building decarbonization, developing local codes, ordinances, and voluntary decarbonization measures, and building decarbonization-related workforce development activities.



Transportation:

The purpose of PPPP is to support data-driven approaches to planning that, upon completion, can be evaluated for public benefit. The program provides funding to develop and implement a publicly accessible, transparent prioritization process for the ranking and selection of projects for inclusion in short-range and long-range transportation plans.

Energy Infrastructure Incentives for Zero-Emission Commercial Vehicles (EnergllZE) is the nation’s first commercial vehicle fleet infrastructure incentive project. EnergllZE provides incentives for zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure equipment for medium- duty and heavy-duty (MDHD) battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles operated and domiciled in California.



Request(s) for Information:

The Washington Department of Commerce opened a public comment period today for an Environmental Justice Assessment (EJA) regarding potential impacts of five new grant programs. These programs will be packaged into three consolidated clean energy grant solicitations for the 2023-25 state fiscal year.


Forecasted Opportunities:

On Tuesday, March 12, The California Energy Commission (CEC) and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) hosted a joint workshop on the CA NEVI grant funding opportunity. The main goal of the workshop was to outline planned changes for the second round of NEVI funding and to solicit feedback from interested parties prior to the opportunity's release.
