The Challenge: Leveraging Federal Support for Innovation
Several federal agencies support clean energy innovation, but their awardees must often supply a significant share of total project costs. This can be an obstacle for both academic researchers and innovative small businesses pursuing federal awards.
AmplifyMass supports academic researchers and companies who need cost-share or adders for federal/on federal prime awards. AmplifyMass provides up to $300,000 for academic or company projects pursuing cost-share or adders for federal or non-federal prime awards (such as awards from ARPA-E, NSF, DOE, and USABC), or up to $100,000 for academic projects that are not tied directly to a prime grant. The program supports projects that aim to commercialize or substantially de-risk an innovation that falls within MassCEC’s mission.
