COVID19 Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) for Businesses
This newly established program by the Department of Energy (DOE) allows national laboratories such as Berkeley Lab to offer short-term, limited assistance to U.S.-based entities dealing with particularly challenging technical hurdles in fighting COVID-19. The funds will support limited-duration and -scope (up to 40 hours) of technical services, analysis, testing, and consulting; they are not intended to be R&D intensive. Berkeley Lab is accepting and considering proposals on a rolling basis, however, funding is finite, so the sooner proposals are submitted, the better.
To learn more, interested parties can visit the COVID-19 Innovation Portal to explore experts, user facilities, and technologies.
Entities who want to work with Berkeley Lab should submit their proposals here.
Questions about CTAP can be sent to email@example.com.
Direct aid to assist artists, teaching artists, culture bearers, and non-profit art workers of up to $2000 of unrestricted funds. Applications are open May 18-June 5. Online application can be accessed HERE
