Description
       The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is an agency within the Department of Energy
       (DOE) that has funded the development and deployment of transformational and disruptive energy
       technologies and systems since 2009. ARPA-E focuses on high-risk concepts with potentially high rewards.
       When it established ARPA-E, Congress directed ARPA-E to: (1) enhance the economic and energy
       security of the United States through the development of energy technologies that result in reductions of
       imports of energy from foreign sources, reductions of energy-related emissions, and improvements in the
       energy efficiency of all economic sectors; and (2) ensure that the United States maintains a technological
       lead in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies. AMPED seeks to support breakthrough
       solutions that offer a realistic path to achieve one or more of the targeted capabilities listed below.
       Technologies that enable any single capability will be considered for award under this FOA, but a strong
       preference will be given to system-level solutions that can demonstrate the potential to substantially impact
       more than one of the objectives. 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, 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-foa.energy.gov/Manuals.aspx). Required forms for Full
       Applications are available on ARPA-E eXCHANGE (https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov), including the SF-424,
       SF-424A, Business Assurances Form, and Other Sources of Funding Disclosure form. A sample response

Description

       The focus of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop specifically-
       identified technologies for buildings that are cost effective and can have a tremendous
       impact on energy savings overall and lead to a market-ready solution (e.g. at the
       commercial prototype phase) within five years of project launch. More specifically, the
       FOA is intended to support prototyping and optimization of proposed technologies for
       which proof-of-concept scientific demonstration already exists. Projects will be expected
       to focus on the research, development, demonstration and commercialization paths of the
       proposed technology while addressing any shortcomings or barriers to market entry.
       Projects must credibly demonstrate how the proposed technologies will meet the targets
       specified in the sub-topic descriptions. Projects under this FOA must be aimed at more
       than progress toward identified project goals; the project must be aimed at actual delivery
       of t these project goals. Topic 1: Energy Saving Heating, Ventilation and Air
       Conditioning (HVAC) systems Subtopic 1.1: High Performance Air Source Cold Climate
       Heat Pumps Subtopic 1.2: Alternative Space-Heating Systems Subtopic 1.3: Next-
       Generation Heat Exchangers for Electric Vapor-Compression Heat Pumps and Air
       Conditioners Topic 2: Energy Saving Building Envelope Solutions Subtopic 2.1: High
       performance thermal insulation Subtopic 2.2: Advanced Roof/Attic Solutions Subtopic

Description

      Under this Notice of Opportunity for Technical Assistance (NOTA), the U.S. Department
      of Energy (DOE) will provide technical assistance to the photovoltaic (PV) industry and
      other stakeholders in the form of validation testing and systems monitoring through DOE
      Regional Test Centers (RTCs). While the primary mission of the RTCs is to develop
      standards and establish the technical basis for bankability, the RTCs will also function as
      test beds for large-scale systems and provide independent validation of PV performance
      and reliability. Recipients of technical assistance will install PV modules and/or systems
      at all three RTC sites, if appropriate. Technologies may include photovoltaic (PV) and
      concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) applications. The DOE/RTCs would provide the land,
      the grid tie, and the testing / data monitoring required to support an assessment of
      product/system performance, consistency of PV module quality, degradation rates, and/
      or PV system reliability issues. Through this effort, the RTCs will develop standards and
      guidelines for validating the performance and operation of PV modules and systems.
      Recipients will benefit by acquiring third-party validation of the module or system
      performance which they may then compare with their prediction of performance.
      Recipients may also propose to ask the RTCs to develop models for predicting module or
      system performance instead of asking for verification of their own predictions. Technical
      assistance will not be provided for research, development, or early-stage testing and
      evaluation. The focus of the RTCs is to accelerate adoption of renewable energy
      generation sources by helping U.S. PV manufacturers validate new commercially ready
      technologies. DOE will not purchase hardware or otherwise provide direct funding to
      organizations selected from this Notice. Agreements are comprised of Technical
      Assistance only. The full Notice of Technical Assistance (NOTA) is posted on the EERE
      Exchange website at https://eere-exchange.energy.gov. Letters of Intent should be sent by
      email to RTC@go.doe.gov. Full 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. The Users' guide for applying to Department
       of Energy (DOE), Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Announcements
       through the Exchange website can be found at https://eere-
       exchange.energy.gov/Manuals.aspx. Information on where to submit questions regarding
       the content of the announcement and where to submit questions regarding submission of
       applications is found in the full FOA posted on the EERE Exchange website.

Description
       The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is an agency within the Department of Energy
       (DOE) that has funded the development and deployment of transformational and disruptive energy
       technologies and systems since 2009. ARPA-E focuses on high-risk concepts with potentially high rewards.
       When it established ARPA-E, Congress directed ARPA-E to: (1) enhance the economic and energy
       security of the United States through the development of energy technologies that result in reductions of
       imports of energy from foreign sources, reductions of energy-related emissions, and improvements in the
       energy efficiency of all economic sectors; and (2) ensure that the United States maintains a technological
       lead in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies. This program seeks to fund the
       development of transformational technologies that reduce the barriers to mass adoption of electrical energy
       storage for stationary and transportation applications. 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,

Description

       This program seeks to enhance what is understood about mentoring as a prevention
       strategy for youth who are at risk of involvement or already involved in the juvenile
       justice system. While mentoring appears to be a promising intervention for youth, more
       evaluation work is needed to further highlight the components of a mentoring program
       that are most effective. Research is also needed to demonstrate the specific components
       of mentoring programs that have a significant impact in reducing juvenile delinquency
       and offending. This solicitation seeks to fund research studies that will inform the design
       and delivery of mentoring programs. OJJDP expects that the results of this effort will
       encourage a more effective utilization of resources as well as enhance the implementation
       of evidence-based best practices for juvenile mentoring. This program is authorized by
       the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2012, Public Law 112-55.

Description

       With this solicitation, NIJ seeks applications from States and units of local government
       for funding to identify, review, and investigate “violent crime cold cases” that have the
       potential to be solved using DNA analysis, and to locate and analyze the biological
       evidence associated with these cases. Experience has shown that cold case programs can
       solve a substantial number of violent crime cold cases, including homicides and sexual
       assaults. Advances in DNA technologies have substantially increased the successful
       DNA analysis of aged, degraded, limited, or otherwise compromised biological evidence.
       As a result, crime scene samples once thought to be unsuitable for testing may now yield
       DNA profiles. Additionally, samples that previously generated inconclusive DNA results
       may now be successfully analyzed. For the purposes of this announcement: a “violent
       crime cold case” refers to any unsolved UCR Part 1 Violent Crime case for which all
       significant investigative leads have been exhausted. Authorizing Legislation: Department
       of Justice Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112–55).

Additional Information on Eligibility:

       U.S. nonprofit organizations are eligible, as are state and local governmental agencies
       and federally recognized Indian tribal governments. Individuals are not eligible to apply.
       NEH generally does not award grants to other federal entities or to applicants whose
       projects are so closely intertwined with a federal entity that the project takes on
       characteristics of the federal entity’s own authorized activities. This does not preclude
       applicants from using grant funds from, or sites and materials controlled by, other federal
       entities in their projects.

Description

       Preservation and Access Research and Development grants support projects that address
       major challenges in preserving or providing access to humanities collections and
       resources. These challenges include the need to find better ways to preserve materials of
       critical importance to the nation’s cultural heritage—from fragile artifacts and
       manuscripts to analog recordings and digital assets subject to technological
       obsolescence—and to develop advanced modes of searching, discovering, and using such
       materials. Applicants should define a specific problem, devise procedures and potential
       solutions, and explain how they would evaluate their projects and disseminate their
       findings. Project results must serve the needs of a significant number of humanists.

Description

       The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program stimulates technological
       innovation in the private sector by strengthening the role of small business concerns in
       meeting Federal research and development needs, increasing the commercial application
       of federally supported research results, and fostering and encouraging participation by
       socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned small businesses. The SBIR
       program solicits proposals from the small business sector consistent with NSF's mission.
       The program is governed by Public Law 112-81 (SBIR/STTR Reauthorization Act of
       2011). A main purpose of the legislation is to stimulate technological innovation and
       increase private sector commercialization. The NSF SBIR program is therefore in a
       unique position to meet both the goals of NSF and the purpose of the SBIR legislation by
       transforming scientific discovery into both social and economic benefit, and by
       emphasizing private sector commercialization. Accordingly, NSF has formulated broad
       solicitation topics for SBIR that conform to the high-technology investment sector's
       interests. The four broad topics are: &middot; Biological and Chemical Technologies
       (BC) &middot; Education Applications (EA) &middot; Electronics, Information and
       Communication Technologies (EI) &middot; Nanotechnology, Advanced Materials, and
       Manufacturing (NM)For detailed description of the four topics reference section V.
