Regional Priority Grant Program Request for Proposals

RFP No. 2015-JAII-01

The Innovation Institute, a Division of Mass Tech Collaborative, is pleased to issue this Request for Proposals (RFP) for funding from the Regional Priority Grant Program.

The Regional Priority Grant Program represents a uniquely creative and comprehensive approach supporting innovation-based economic development across the Commonwealth. The design of this program aims to solicit creative ideas from local and regional leaders, and to challenge them to collaborate in improving the conditions for economic growth. Rather than supporting individual projects benefitting only project stakeholders, this program is committed to seeking out and supporting exceptional initiatives capable of benefitting a region, industry cluster, or other ecosystem, or the state as a whole.

Regional Priority Grant Awards are ideally suited to the organization and alignment of resources enabling multi-party, cross-sector, collaborations to compete for state, national and global market opportunities. Fundable projects should advance opportunities for the development, retention, and growth of regional employment.  These awards are best suited to support novel experiments in which public funding is meaningfully leveraged against non-government funding and resources from both private and nonprofit sources.
