The window of opportunity to apply for this program is annually. The most recent window opened in early September with a closing date of January 31, 2018. We are already working with 2 groups for the 2018 deadline. We anticipate the next window opening in 2019. Please do not hesitate in contacting us with your ideas as there is a significant amount of development of the idea necessary to complete the 30 page application, and be competitive nationally. Sunergie has an excellent track record in helping applicants apply for and win this beneficial grant.
