Applications for Collaborative Infrastructure Grants due April 1, 2020
The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) is now accepting applications for the Advanced Industries Collaborative Infrastructure Grants for fiscal year 2020. Applications are due April 1, 2020 by 5:00 PM.
Collaborative Infrastructure Grants are part of the Accelerator Grant Programs at OEDIT. These grants are for large scale, collaborative projects that have broad, industry-wide impact. These grants are for projects that include multiple stakeholders and partnerships rather than company specific funding. Grants up to $500,000 will be awarded.
The Advanced Industries Accelerator Program was created in 2013 to promote growth and sustainability in Colorado’s Advanced Industries by driving innovation, accelerating commercialization, encouraging public-private partnerships, increasing access to early stage capital and creating a strong ecosystem that increases the state’s global competitiveness. Colorado’s Advanced Industries include Aerospace, Advanced Manufacturing, Bioscience, Electronics, Energy and Natural Resources, Infrastructure Engineering, and Technology & Information.
