Help navigating and identifying federal supports for your program-ready clean tech project.
How we can help
We understand that finding support for your clean tech project can be a challenge and we're here to help. Our advisors from departments and agencies across the federal government connect clean tech innovators, developers and adopters with government funding and services to advance program-ready clean tech projects and initiatives.
Please note that the Hub is not a funding program and does not influence final program decisions.
Who can access this service?
Companies and organizations that will benefit from the Hub's advisory services are those that:
- have a project that is program-ready;
- need to fill a partial funding gap;
- need help navigating federal programs and services to advance their clean tech projects; or
- have completed a comprehensive study to fill knowledge gaps or assess feasibility.
What does "program-ready" mean?
Program-ready means that:
- you have a project where the technology is at TRL 3+ (past the idea stage);
- you own the intellectual property (IP) or have an IP strategy (when developing tech); and
- you have a business plan.
Not quite program-ready?
Don't worry! There are other advisory services and supports that can help.
