The President's Budget for Fiscal Year 2013

The President’s 2013 Budget is built around the idea that our country does best
when everyone gets a fair shot, does their fair share, and plays by the same rules.
We must transform our economy from one focused on speculating, spending, and
borrowing to one constructed on the solid foundation of educating, innovating,
and building. That begins with putting the Nation on a path to living within our
means – by cutting wasteful spending, asking all Americans to shoulder their fair
share, and making tough choices on some things we cannot afford, while keeping
the investments we need to grow the economy and create jobs. The Budget targets
scarce federal resources to the areas critical to growing the economy and restoring
middle-class security: education and skills for American workers, innovation and
research and development, clean energy, and infrastructure.

The House and Senate will begin making funding decisions for FY13 by holding
hearings on the President’s budget requests. The House and Senate
Appropriations Committees will begin holding the hearings in the month of
March. With less money to spend, legislators will be looking for ways to cut
spending but still funding programs important to their constituents.
Each subcommittee provides live webcasts and/or live audio of their hearing.
Check the appropriations committee calendars for exact date and times to follow
the programs.

KEY BUDGET FACTS
   In the Budget Control Act, both parties in Congress and the President
     agreed to tight spending caps that reduce discretionary spending by $1
     trillion over 10 years. This budget reflects that decision. Thus, for all the
     priority areas we are investing in, difficult trade-offs had to be made to
     meet these very tight caps.
          o Discretionary spending is reduced from 8.7 percent of GDP in
              2011 to 5.0 percent in 2022.

      Including the $1 trillion in discretionary cuts, the Budget includes more
       than
       $4 trillion in balanced, deficit reduction so that, by 2018, we cut the deficit
       to less than 3 percent of GDP, stabilize the debt-to-GDP ratio, and achieve
       primary balance.
      For every $1 in new revenue from those making more than $250,000 per
       year and from closing corporate loopholes, the Budget has $2.50 in
       spending cuts including the deficit reduction enacted over the last year.

      2012 Projected Deficit: $1.33 trillion, 8.5 percent of GDP; 2013 Projected
       Deficit: $901 billion, 5.5 percent of GDP; 2018 Projected Deficit: $575
       billion, 2.7 percent of GDP; 2022 Projected Deficit: $704 billion, 2.8
       percent of GDP.

JUMPSTART JOB CREATION
   More than $350 billion in short-term measures for job growth starting in
     2012, including many planks of the American Jobs Act that we continue to
     call on Congress to enact plus some new job creation initiatives. They
     include:
         o Extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance
             benefits for rest of 2012.

           o   An upfront investment of $50 billion from the surface
               transportation reauthorization bill for roads, rails, and runways to
               create thousands of quality jobs in the short term.

           o   Continuing to allow businesses to write-off the full amount of new
               investments.

           o   $30 billion to modernize at least 35,000 schools and $30 billion to
               help states and localities retain and hire teachers and first
              responders.

          o   Project Rebuild, a series of policies to help connect Americans
              looking for work in distressed communities with the work needed
              to re-purpose residential and commercial properties, creating jobs
              and stabilizing neighborhoods.

          o A new tax credit for this year focused on small businesses and that
            gives businesses that add jobs and wages a tax cut equal to 10
            percent of wages added up to $500,000.
EDUCATION AND SKILLS FOR AMERICAN WORKERS
   $850 million for Race to the Top, which implements systemic education
    reforms in five critical areas, including early learning and care. The
    Budget also provides $300 million in new resources to improve child care
    quality and prepare children for success in school.

      A new $5 billion competitive program that will challenge states and
       districts to work with their teachers and unions to attract, prepare, and
       reward great teachers to help students learn.

      Make college more affordable and help achieve the President’s goal of the
       U.S. leading the world in college graduates by 2020:
          o Sustains the maximum Pell Grant award through the 2014-2015
               award year.
          o A one-year measure to prevent student loan interest rates from
               doubling this summer and doubles the number of work-study jobs.
          o New reforms to help address rising costs by shifting some Federal
               aid away from colleges that fail to keep net tuition down and by
               providing incentives for States and colleges to keep costs under
               control.

          o   Makes permanent the American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) -
              - a partially refundable tax credit worth up to $10,000 per student
              over four years of college. AOTC helps more than 9 million
              students and their families afford the cost of college.

   Supports State and community college partnerships with businesses to
    build the skills of American workers, and creates a Pathways Back to
    Work Fund, which will support summer and year-round jobs for low-
    income youth, and will help connect the long-term unemployed and low-
    income adults to subsidized employment and work-based training
    opportunities.
AMERICAN INNOVATION AND MANUFACTURING
    $140.8 billion for R&D overall; increase the level of investment in non-
    defense R&D by 5 percent from the 2012 level, even as overall budgets
    decline; maintains the President’s commitment to double the budgets of
       three key basic research agencies (National Science Foundation,
       Department of Energy’s Office of Science, and National Institute of
       Standards and Technology Laboratories); expands and makes permanent
       the R&D tax credit.

      $2.2 billion for advanced manufacturing R&D, a 19 percent increase over
       2012.

      Provides tax incentives for manufacturers who create jobs here at home
       and doubles the deduction for advanced manufacturing; ends tax
       deductions for shipping jobs overseas; and establishes a Manufacturing
       Communities Tax Credit to encourage investment in communities affected
       by job loss.

      Level funding for biomedical research at NIH ($30.7 billion); and to get
       more out of the money, proposes new grant management policies to
       increase the number of new research grants by 7 percent.

    Supports the goals of: putting one million electric vehicles on the road by
     2015; doubling share of electricity from clean energy sources by 2035;
     and reducing buildings’ energy use by 20 percent by 2020.
         o Elimination of 12 tax breaks to oil, gas, and coal companies will
            raise $41 billion over 10 years.
BUILD AMERICA: A 21ST CENTURY INFRASTRUCTURE
   A six-year, $476 billion surface transportation reauthorization bill –
     expanded to included inter-city passenger rail – to create thousands of new
     jobs and modernize a critical foundation of our economic growth.
         o Fully paid for through current user-financed mechanisms and part
            of the savings from ending the war in Iraq and winding down
            operations in Afghanistan.

           o  Get the most out of taxpayer dollars through: a “fix-it first” policy,
              consolidation of 55 duplicative highway programs into five, and
              using a Race to the Top-style competition to bring about reform.
      National Infrastructure Bank to fund projects of national importance.

    Builds a next-generation, wireless broadband network for public safety
    users.
         o Plan is fully paid for, and the sale of spectrum provides nearly $21
             billion for deficit reduction.
AMERICAN VALUES: EVERYONE PAYS THEIR FAIR SHARE
   Calls for individual tax reform that: cuts the deficit by $1.5 trillion,
    including the expiration of the high-income 2001 and 2003 tax cuts;
    simplifies the tax code, lowers tax rates, and protects progressivity;
    eliminates inefficient and unfair tax breaks for millionaires while making
    all tax breaks at least as good for the middle class as for the wealthy; and
       observes the Buffett Rule that no household making more than $1 million
       a year pays less than 30 percent of their income in taxes.

      Scores of cuts and consolidations including more than $7.5 billion in
       administrative savings.

      Financial Crisis Responsibility Fee on largest financial institutions to fully
       compensate taxpayers for their extraordinary support. Raises $61 billion
       over 10 years and is intended to offset cost of TARP and the President’s
       mortgage refinancing program.

       More than $360 billion in savings to Medicare, Medicaid, and other
       health programs over 10 years to make these programs more effective and
       efficient and move our health system to one that rewards high-quality
       medicine.

      $278 billion in non-health mandatory savings through reforms in areas
       such as: agriculture subsidies and direct payments, federal civilian worker
       retirement, and the PBGC.

       Implements the new defense strategy to spend $487 billion less in the
       Department of Defense’s base budget than was planned in last year’s
       Budget. Overall defense budget, including overseas contingency
       operations, is 5 percent below last year’s enacted level.

       GRANTS.GOV APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED THROUGH
       THE CNCS eGRANTS SYSTEM:
       https://egrants.cns.gov/espan/main/login.jsp This Notice of Funds
       Availability (Notice) announces the opportunity to apply for Fiscal Year
       2012 awards from the Social Innovation Fund. The Social Innovation
       Fund is administered by the Corporation for National and Community
       Service (CNCS), a federal agency that engages more than five million
       Americans in service through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and
       Serve America, and leads President Obama's national call to service
       initiative, United We Serve. In 2009, Congress passed the Edward M.
       Kennedy Serve America Act (SAA), the most sweeping expansion of
       national service in a generation. This landmark law not only expands
       service opportunities, it focuses national service on key outcomes; builds
       the capacity of individuals, nonprofits, and communities to succeed; and
       encourages innovative approaches to solving problems, including through
       the establishment of the Social Innovation Fund. The Social Innovation
       Fund is itself an innovative program that awards grants to existing
       grantmaking institutions, or “intermediaries,” who in turn subgrant funds
       to promising community-based nonprofit organizations to validate and
       grow outcomes-focused approaches to challenges facing local
       communities in three priority issue areas: • Youth Development; •
       Economic Opportunity; and • Healthy Futures. The Social Innovation
       Fund directs resources toward increasing the evidence base, capacity and
       scale of the organizations it funds in order to improve the lives of people
       served by those organizations. The operating model of the Social
       Innovation Fund has been explicitly designed to advance these objectives
       and is distinguished by four key elements: (1) reliance on intermediaries
       with strong skills and track records of success to do the critical work of
       selecting, validating, and growing high-impact nonprofit organizations; (2)
       requirements that each federal dollar granted by the Social Innovation
       Fund be matched 1:1 by the intermediaries with money from private and
       other non-federal sources and that subgrants by these intermediaries be
       matched 1:1 by subgrantees; (3) requirements that all grantees engage
       each of their subgrantees in formal evaluations of program performance
       and impact; and (4) a commitment to knowledge sharing and other
       initiatives that advance social innovation more generally in the nonprofit
       sector.

Broad Agency Announcements

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is a competitive solicitation procedure
used to obtain proposals for basic and applied research and that part of
development not related to the development of a specific system or hardware
procurement. The BAA is described in FAR 6.102, "Use of Competitive
Procedures," and FAR 35.016, "Broad Agency Announcements."

Basic Authority - The Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) of 1984 issued as
Public Law 98-369 (98 stat, 1175 et seq.) authorizes use of "general solicitations"
or Broad Agency Announcements (BAA's). The use of general solicitations is
limited by CICA to "basic research proposals." Contracts awarded under these
general solicitations meet the "full and open" competition requirements of CICA.

The type of research solicited under a BAA attempts to increase knowledge in
science and/or to advance the state of the art as compared to practical application
of knowledge.

Description

       The Idea Award is designed to promote new ideas that are still in the early
       stages of development and have the potential to yield highly impactful
       data and new avenues of investigation. This mechanism supports
       conceptually innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that could lead to
       critical discoveries or major advancements that will accelerate progress
       toward ending breast cancer. Applications should include a well-
       formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale.
       Innovation and impact are the most important aspects of the Idea Award.
       Applications that demonstrate exceptional scientific merit but lack
       innovation and high potential impact do not meet the intent of the Idea
       Award. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of
       the Idea Award mechanism. While the inclusion of preliminary data is not
       prohibited, the strength of the application should not rely on preliminary
       data, but on the innovative idea and the potential impact it will provide.

       through 606.5 and the notice inviting applications for designation as an
       eligible institution for the fiscal year for which the grant competition is
       being conducted. For purposes of establishing eligibility for this

       Institution for FY 2012 was published in the Federal Register on
       December 15, 2011 (76 FR 77982). Only institutions that submitted the
       required application and received designation through this process are
       eligible to submit applications for this competition. (c) Be accredited by a

      training offered, or making reasonable progress toward accreditation,
      according to such an agency or association (section 502(a)(2)(A)(iv) of the
      HEA; 20 U.S.C. 1101a(a)(2)(A)(iv)); (d) Be legally authorized to provide,
      and provide within the State, an educational program for which the
      institution awards a bachelor's degree (section 502(a)(2)(A)(iii) of the
      HEA or a junior or community college; 20 U.S.C. 1101a(a)(2)(A)(iii));

Description

      Note: Each funding opportunity description is a synopsis of information in
      the Federal Register application notice. For specific information about
      eligibility, please see the official application notice. The official version of
      this document is the document published in the Federal Register. Free
      Internet access to the official edition of the Federal Register and the Code
      of Federal Regulations is available on GPO Access at:
      http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/index.html. Please review the official
      application notice for pre-application and application requirements,
      application submission information, performance measures, priorities and
      program contact information. The HSI Program provides grants to assist
      HSIs to expand educational opportunities for, and improve the academic
      attainment of, Hispanic students. The HSI Program grants also enable
      HSIs to expand and enhance their academic offerings, program quality,
      and institutional stability. General Background In 2008, the Higher
      Education Act of 1965 (HEA) was amended by the Higher Education
      Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEA). The HEOA made a number of changes to
      the HSI program. The regulations for the HSI Program in 34 part 606 have
      not been updated since before the HEA was amended by the HEOA.
      Therefore, we encourage applicants to carefully read this notice, which
      references the statutory provisions when the corresponding regulatory
      provisions for this program have not been updated. For example, section
      501 of the HEOA amended section 503(b) of the HEA to include, among
      the authorized activities under the HSI Program-- (1) Activities to improve
      student services, including innovative and customized instruction courses
      designed to help retain students and move the students into core courses;
      (2) Articulation agreements and student support programs designed to
      facilitate the transfer of students from 2-year to 4-year institutions; and (3)
      Providing education, counseling services, or financial information
       designed to improve the financial and economic literacy of students or
       their families. (4) The list of authorized activities in section 503(b) of the
       HEA was also amended to use the term ``distance education technologies''
       in place of ``distance learning academic instruction capabilities.''
       Therefore, notwithstanding the description of authorized activities in Sec.
       606.10, applicants may include these activities in their proposals under
       this competition. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA)
       Number: 84.031S. Applications for grants under the HSI Program, CFDA
       Number 84.031S, must be submitted electronically using the

       site, you will be able to download a copy of the application package,

Additional Information on Eligibility:

       On December 19, 2011, we published a notice in the Federal Register (76
       FR 78621) inviting applications for new awards for FY 2012 for the UB
       Program (NIA). On January 25, 2012, we published a second notice in the
       Federal Register (77 FR 3751) extending the deadline date for the
       transmittal of applications to February 1, 2012, and extending the deadline
       date for Intergovernmental Review to April 2, 2012. Shortly before the
       revised application deadline date, it came to the Department's attention
       that some informational materials made available on a Department Web
       site contained an error that may have led some applicants to incorrectly
       respond to one of the competitive preference priorities. Following a
       review of the nature and extent of the error and concerns about its
       potential effects on applicants' scores, the Department is reopening the
       competition for two weeks to provide time for applicants that submitted
       timely applications under the February 1, 2012, deadline and that may
       have been affected by this error to submit amended applications. This
       opportunity will be limited to a specific subset of applicants that meet
       certain demonstrated criteria. The Department will compare amended
       applications submitted in accordance with this notice with the original
       submissions to ensure the applicant satisfies the criteria for a
       resubmission. The Department will not accept any amended application
       that fails to meet the criteria set forth in this notice. Eligible Applicants:
       Institutions of higher education; public and private agencies and
       organizations, including community-based organizations with experience
       in serving disadvantaged youth; combination of these institutions,
       agencies, and organizations; and secondary schools.

Description
       The U.S Department of Energy seeks to provide support for regionally-
       diverse Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects through
       collaborative partnerships. By providing funding, technical assistance, and
       government coordination to accelerate deployment of these demonstration
       projects, DOE can help eliminate uncertainties, mitigate risks, and help
       create a robust U.S. Offshore Wind Energy Industry. The primary goals of
       the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects are to: 1. Install
       innovative offshore wind systems in U.S. waters in the most rapid and
       responsible manner possible, and 2. Expedite the development and
       deployment of innovative offshore wind energy systems with a credible
       potential for lowering the level zed cost of energy (LCOE) below 10 cents
       / kWh or the local hurdle price at which offshore wind can compete with
       other regional generation sources without subsidies. With over 4,000 GW
       of gross potential that is relatively close to key load centers, offshore wind
       energy can help the nation reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, diversify
       its energy supply, provide cost-competitive electricity to key coastal
       regions, and stimulate economic revitalization of key sectors of the
       economy. However, if the nation is to realize these benefits, key
       challenges to the development and deployment of offshore wind
       technology must be overcome, including the relatively high current cost of
       energy, technical challenges surrounding installation and grid
       interconnection, and the untested permitting or approval processes. DOE
       seeks technology demonstration projects that combine innovation with
       pathways for substantial cost reduction opportunities. The full Funding
       Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is posted on the EERE exchange
       website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov. Applications must be
       submitted through the EERE exchange website to be considered for
       award. The applicant must first register and create an account on the
       EERE exchange website. A User Guide for the EERE exchange can be
       found on the EERE website
       http://eere.energy.gov/financing/exchangeExchange/Manuals.aspx after

Description

       The DOE SunShot Initiative aims to reduce the installed costs of solar
       energy systems by 75% by the end of the decade, achieving grid parity for
       subsidy-free solar energy. SunShot drives American innovation through
       advanced research and development, strengthening domestic
       manufacturing and cutting-edge technology. If successful, the SunShot
       Initiative will ensure solar energy is a viable and economic source for the
       nation’s power needs and will significantly contribute to U.S. prosperity in
       the 21st century. The SunShot Incubator Program facilitates American
       small business transitions from a proof of concept or business plan to
       domestic commercialization or deployment. The emphasis on proposed
       activities should be focused on addressing barriers to scale-up,
       commercialization, and deployment by 2015. This funding opportunity
       seeks to create independent businesses which can fully support
       themselves and continue to grow after the end of the award period. This
       opportunity is not for creating a product, organization, service, or other
       entity or item which requires continued government support. Areas of
       programmatic interest include but are not limited to (1) photovoltaics, (2)
       balance of systems, (3) power electronics, (4) concentrating solar power,
       (5) tools to address non-hardware costs of solar energy, (6) plug-and-play
       wiring and installation techniques, (7) energy storage, and (8) other
       proposals that bring novel, non-incremental technologies that facilitate
       SunShot goals in any area of solar energy deployment to market.

Description
       The Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy (ARPA-E) is an
       organization within the Department of Energy, chartered by Congress in
       the America COMPETES Act (Pub. L. No. 110-69) to support the creation
       of transformational energy technologies and systems through funding and
       managing Research and Development (R&D) efforts. Originally chartered
       in 2007, the Agency was first funded through the American Recovery and
       Reinvestment Act of 2009. Since that time, the Agency has funded over
       180 projects totaling more than $500 million across the entire technology
       landscape. The mission of ARPA-E is to identify and fund research to
       translate science into breakthrough energy technologies that are too risky
       for the private sector and that, if successfully developed, will create the
       foundation for entirely new industries. Successful projects will address at
       least one of ARPA-E's two Mission Areas: 1.Enhance the economic and
       energy security of the United States through the development of energy
       technologies that result in: a. reductions of imports of energy from foreign
       sources; b. reductions of energy-related emissions, including greenhouse
       gases; and c. improvement in the energy efficiency of all economic sectors
       2. Ensure that the United States maintains a technological lead in
       developing and deploying advanced energy technologies. To address the
       challenges imposed by the rapidly evolving global energy market, ARPA-
       E seeks to support transformational research in all areas of energy R&D,
       including resource identification, extraction, transportation and use, and
       energy generation, storage, transmission and use in both the transportation
       and stationary power sectors. Areas of research responsive to this FOA
       include (but are not limited to) electricity generation by both renewable
       and non-renewable means, electricity transmission, storage, and
       distribution; energy efficiency for buildings, manufacturing and
       commerce, and personal use; and all aspects of transportation, including
       the production and distribution of both renewable and non-renewable
       fuels, electrification, and energy efficiency in transportation. To obtain a
       copy of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) please go to the
       ARPA-E website at https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov. Notices of Intent,
       Concept Papers, Full Applications, and Replies to Reviewer Comments
       must be submitted through ARPA-E eXCHANGE (https://arpa-e-
       foa.energy.gov/), ARPA-E’s online application portal. ARPA-E will not
       review or consider applications submitted through other means. For
       detailed guidance on using ARPA-E eXCHANGE, please refer to the
       ARPA-E eXCHANGE User Guide? (https://arpa-e-

Description
       This announcement solicits applications for the Rural Health Research
       Center (RHRC) Cooperative Agreement Program. The purpose of the
       RHRC Cooperative Agreement Program is to increase the amount of high
       quality, impartial, policy-relevant research to assist decision-makers at the
       federal, state and local levels to better understand problems faced by rural
       communities, and provide information that will improve access to health
       care and population health. RHRC recipients will conduct policy-oriented
       health services research on rural issues and synthesize the results into
       reports easily understood by a non-technical policy audience. They will
       develop and disseminate research products in consultation with ORHP, in
       its official policy role, to State Offices of Rural Health and other decision-
       makers. RHRC recipients will maintain and keep up-to-date an extensive
       library of data sets on their rural topic of concentration (e.g., include
       access to health care for the under- and uninsured, health care quality and
       outcomes, home health, and rural health clinics, racial and ethnic
       disparities) geo-coded so they can analyze the data for a variety of
       definitions of rural. Recipients will develop a policy-relevant research
       portfolio each year with input from ORHP, their Expert Work Group (if
       applicable), and other decision-makers. RHRC recipients must frame rural
       issues into researchable questions. Applicants must demonstrate
       capabilities in manipulating complex data sets and in linking across data
       sets. The awards provided through the RHRC Cooperative Agreement
       Program are designed to provide support for a four-year research center
       with a specific area of research concentration, and intended to provide an
       infrastructure to support health services researchers entering the field to
       explore the research complexities of rural health issues. This Cooperative
       Agreement Program will support health services research projects but
       excludes clinical/biomedical research and the expenditure of funds for
       delivery of services.

       The purpose of the NHLBI SBIR Phase IIB Bridge Award is to facilitate
       and accelerate the capital-intensive steps that are required to transition
       SBIR Phase II projects to the commercialization stage by promoting
       partnerships between SBIR Phase II awardees and third-party investors
       and/or strategic partners. Applicants must submit a Commercialization
       Plan, which should include details on any independent third-party funding
       that has already been secured or is anticipated during the Phase IIB Bridge
       Award project period. It is expected that the level of this independent
       third-party funding will be equal to or greater than the NHLBI funds being
       requested throughout the Phase IIB Bridge Award project period. Projects
       proposed in response to this FOA must relate to the NHLBI mission and
       require eventual Federal regulatory approval/clearance. Proposed projects
       may address preclinical and/or clinical stages of technology development.
       Clinical trials may be proposed as appropriate, but are not required.

       governments; to enhance intergovernmental cooperation and coordination
       on the issue of alcohol use among youth; to serve as a catalyst for

       commitment to reducing alcohol use among youth; to disseminate to
       communities timely information regarding state-of-the-art practices and
       initiatives that have proven to be effective in preventing and reducing
       alcohol use among youth; and to enhance, not supplant, effective local
       community initiatives for preventing and reducing alcohol use among
       youth. See Appendix F of this RFA for further background information.
       The STOP Act program aligns with SAMHSA’s Strategic Initiative 1:

       reduce consequences of underage drinking and adult problem drinking;
       Objective 1.2.1: Establish the prevention of underage drinking as a priority
       issue for States, Territories, Tribal entities, universities, and communities;
       1.2.1.3: Through the Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking Act
       (STOP Act) program, enhance intergovernmental cooperation and
       coordination on the issue of alcohol use among youth and provide
       communities timely information regarding state-of-the-art practices that
       have proven to be effective. STOP Act grants are authorized under 42

Description
       Purpose. The primary objectives of the SHIFT SBIR initiative are: (1) to
       foster research that is translational in nature and (2) to transform academic
       scientific discoveries into commercial products and services. Academic
       researchers can be a driving force for new products and services in a small
       business concern (SBC). A major feature of the SHIFT program includes
       the requirement for an investigator who is primarily employed by a United
       States research institution at the time of application to transition to a small
       business concern (SBC) and be primarily employed (more than 50% time)
       by the SBC by or at the time of award. A SHIFT SBIR grant enables an
       SBC to increase both its scientific research staff and its core competencies.
       The Project Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) may also facilitate
       SBC licensing of intellectual property (IP) from the PD/PIs prior academic
       institutions, promote collaboration opportunities with academic
       investigators, and enable better access to academic resources. Mechanism
       of Support. This FOA will utilize the SBIR (R43/R44) grant mechanisms
       for Phase I, Phase II, and Fast-Track applications. Funds Available and
       Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are
       contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient
       number of meritorious applications. The total amount awarded and the
       number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the
       applications received.

Description
       This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages the
       translation of technologies for biomedical or behavioral research from
       academic and other non-small business research sectors to the
       marketplace. Small Business Concerns (SBCs) are encouraged to submit
       Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications that
       propose to further develop, make more robust, and make more user-
       friendly such technologies in preparation for commercial dissemination. It
       is expected that this activity will require partnerships and close
       collaboration between the original developers of these technologies and
       SBCs, which may be accomplished in any of a number of ways, including
       the use of multiple principle investigators.
