AmplifyMass - How do I apply
Applications for AmplifyMass will be accepted on a rolling basis and will generally coincide with specific ARPA-E Funding Opportunity Announcements. Awards will be made on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Step 1: After completing an ARPA-E concept paper and receiving feedback from ARPA-E, companies and university teams may complete the AmplifyMass Pre-Qualification Application.
Step 2: Upon confirming eligibility of the application, MassCEC will issue a pre-qualification letter indicating the intention to provide an up-front cost share of a specified amount should the applicant receive an ARPA-E award. This pre-qualification letter can be submitted as part of the applicant’s full application to ARPA-E.
Step 3: If selected for an ARPA-E award, the awardee must submit the AmplifyMass Final Application, which is subject to re-confirmation that the applicant meets all eligibility criteria.
Step 4: Upon re-confirming eligibility and funding availability, MassCEC will issue a firm commitment letter to provide cost share. A funding agreement will be provided for review at this time.
Step 5: Upon execution of funding agreements with both MassCEC and ARPA-E, funds will be disbursed to awardees in a single, up-front payment.
