InnovateMass - Who's Eligible?

Who's Eligible?

Only technologies that have achieved Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 will be considered eligible for an InnovateMass grant.

Application Teams may comprise both public and private entities, including clean energy companies, research and development institutions, academic institutions, state, local, and quasi-governmental agencies, school districts and nonprofits.

Teams must include a technology developer – typically a clean energy company – and a demonstration site/host, with one entity designated as the “Lead Applicant” that will contract directly with MassCEC.

At least one member of the Application Team must be located in Massachusetts. While there is no requirement that the demonstration project site be in Massachusetts, applications will be judged on the project’s projected environmental and economic benefits to the Commonwealth.
