Duration: Grant duration is determined by appropriate project milestones and funding typically lasts between six to 18 months. Renewal applications are by invitation only and evaluated on a competitive basis with new applications.
Budget: Up to $1,200,000 of funding is available annually for all projects with an additional $300,000 worth of in-kind additional resources (marketing, regulatory, and reimbursement). There is no funding limit per project or a set number of projects that must be selected. All projects and their budgets are evaluated on their own merits.
