Federal Funding Opportunities
There are thousands of federal funding opportunities. The National Science Foundation alone has an annual budget of over $7 billion and offers more than 12,500 funding opportunities each year.
This document lists the multitude of funding opportunities offered by federal agencies that provide stimulus to the bioeconomy. They are organized by each of the nine Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) that new ideas must travel – from initial concept up to commercial introduction.
These funding opportunities are the ones on behalf of which AFCC advocates. That' because they are essential to the Nation’s ability to support innovation; introduce new technologies, products and services into the marketplace; enhance American's lives; and strengthen U.S. competition and global leadership.
