PSIAP TABA & Demonstration

PSIAP Follow-on Funding for Technical and Business Assistance and Demonstration Projects with Public Safety Agencies

The Public Safety Innovation Accelerator Program (PSIAP) from PSCR is currently seeking applications from eligible organizations - entities that previously were awarded a grant, cooperative agreement, prize challenge or subaward by a federal entity (‘entities with a previous award”), such as NIST Public Safety Communications Research Division, National Telecommunications and Information Administration, Department of Homeland Security, etc., for a public-safety focused communication technology innovation - to propose activities that will either:

  1. More rapidly advance their prototypes through needed technical and business assistance; or 
  2. A demonstration project with a partnering public safety agency, to provide additional testing and research.

Acknowledging the technology development and life cycle gap from early-stage research and prototypes to publicly available technology, PSCR is providing these funding opportunities to entities with a previous award in an effort to further propel forward their research and prototypes and more quickly advance needed improvements in communication technology for first responders.

 How To Apply

NIST will consider applications on a continuing/rolling basis as they are received. To ensure consideration, applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on May 31, 2022.
