Technology-based Economic Development Grant opportunities open

IDAHO FALLS — Idaho National Laboratory is taking applications from nonprofit organizations interested in participating in its 2020 Technology-based Economic Development Campaign.

The TBED program’s mission is to stimulate economic development, support new technology, recruit new talent and encourage entrepreneurship throughout Idaho. To achieve these goals, grants for several different types of projects are being offered:

• Projects that support INL missions related to energy, environment and national security.
• Projects that could ultimately benefit INL and its ability to attract and maintain talent in Idaho.
• Statewide projects that strengthen energy, advanced manufacturing and cybersecurity supply chains.
Organizations must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit entities. A copy of the IRS tax-exempt letter must accompany the form.

The deadline for 2020 donation requests is Nov. 15. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be included in the review process. Decisions will be made by Dec. 17. Notifications will be sent to requesting organizations informing them of funding awards. Funds will be for projects for the period of Jan. 1, 2020, to Dec. 31, 2020.
