Here are descriptions of each of the resources available for viewing grant opportunities:
Grants.gov lists the discretionary grants offered by 26 federal grant-making agencies, including DOE. To view current grant offerings, click on the button to the left. On the Grants.gov home page, under "Find Grant Opportunities" click on the blue tab "Browse Agencies," and select "Department of Energy." In the header in the chart that appears, it is helpful to click twice on "Close Date" in the far right hand column so grant offerings are listed in the order in which applications or responses are due. Clicking on the "Opportunity Number" to the left of a grant title will take you to a synopsis of the grant. Each DOE grant synopsis will include a link where additional information can be obtained, which may be from FedConnect, EERE Exchange, ARPA-E or the Office of Science (see buttons and descriptions below).
For grants marked "FedConnect," click on the button to the left and type in or copy the opportunity title in the space under “Search Criteria.” Or, as an alternative, click the down arrow next to “Title,” select “Reference Number,” type or copy in the Funding Opportunity reference number, then click “Search.”
The EERE Exchange provides a comprehensive list of energy efficiency and renewable energy funding opportunities, both current and recently past, with upwards of 100 or more grants listed at any one time. The chart lists each grant in ascending order by FOA number. The chart also provides the grant title and the dates when letters of interest (LOIs), concept papers (CPs) and full applications (FAs) are due. By clicking on the FOA number in the left hand column of the chart, you will go to a description of the grant with links to download the complete solicitation, required application documents, contact information, frequently asked questions (FAQs) and submission deadlines.
The DOE's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) ssues periodic funding announcements that are focused on overcoming specific barriers around a specific energy area. ARPA-E also issues "Open" FOAs to attract proposals for innovative projects and technologies that offer a high potential for addressing the nation's energy-related issues. Its chart is organized in the same manner as the EERE chart.
The Office of Science has an annual solicitation that opens at the beginning of each federal fiscal year (October 1) and closes at the end of each fiscal year (September 30). It also may issue periodic funding opportunities at other times during the year, which will be noticed on Grants.gov.
The DOE's Annual Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program is administered by the Office of Science. In mid-July each year, the Office of Science issues a list of 25-35 topics that will be the focus of grant awards for the upcoming fiscal year. Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) typically are released in August, with Letters of Intent (LOIs) due in early September and applications due in mid-October. Webinars describing the topics and FOAs are held shortly after the topics and FOAs are released.
