1. Is this grant open for non-U.S. citizens working in U.S.?
A non-U.S. citizen could participate as an employee or a contractor of an eligible organization. Note that individuals, regardless of citizenship, are not eligible to apply on their own.
2. What is the anticipated balance between the development and distribution of materials? Is the contractor primarily responsible for “distribution” or will NIST utilize the developed materials in a longer-term effort?
The recipient is responsible for development and distribution. The balance would be at the discretion of the applicant. NIST does not have any plans to distribute the developed materials. Please look at the evaluation criteria in the NOFO for additional details.
