Federal Funding Opportunity Awards

Rolling Competitive Awards Program (CAP) Announcements

For the Rolling Competitive Awards Program (CAP) Notice of Federal Funding Opportunity (NOFO), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites applications from current MEP Centers to add capabilities to the MEP Program, including the development of projects to solve new or emerging manufacturing problems, that are not already provided for under an applicant’s and its collaborating Center’s base MEP award.   Themes include new manufacturing technologies of relevance to small and medium-sized manufacturers, particularly those related to Industry/Manufacturing 4.0, supply chain management technologies and practices and workforce intermediary and business services.  However, so long as an application addresses the program priorities listed in Section I.2. of the NOFO, it need not focus upon any of the identified thematic areas to be considered for funding under the NOFO.

Below is a list of announcements of the awardees for the Rolling Competitive Awards Program with the corresponding funding opportunity number.
