Time again, boys and girls, for our monthly recap of how our region is doing in pursuing Recovery Act dollars that impact our leading industry clusters. After today’s Department of Energy SBIR awards, we’re at more than 556 projects totaling $537,779,186.56 in investment. Check out the entire list. Also, for all you clean technology focused folks, over 95 of those projects totaling $322,192,436.56 are specifically clean energy related.
What else are we up to these days in our ARRA coordination? Glad you asked!
1) Continuing to update the database as new opportunities are released and awarded (note the funds highlighted in blue in the clearinghouse that are yet to be granted).
2) Conducting a survey of the community to find out their experiences with ARRA and how we can help them continue to apply for/implement funds. (Take it, if you haven’t yet!)
3) Taking folks on a bus tour of ARRA funded projects. (Feel free to come along if you’re interested!)
4) Continuing to blog on opportunities.
If there’s anything else we can do to help, let us know!
