Upcoming CPC Meetings

The CPC meeting previously scheduled for 12 July 2017 has been canceled.

Submission deadlines for later CPC meetings are available from our Calendar link.

Funding Deadlines

The required first steps in the funding process are an in-person orientation meeting with staff and discussion of a short pre-proposal with the CPC at one of its regular public meetings.

Sponsors of projects aimed at the Fy18 funding round were required to submit pre-proposals by 1 May 2017. Full proposals that were invited by the CPC based on those pre-proposal discussions are due by 2 October 2017.

Fy19 funding deadlines will be announced here in summer 2017, but the cutoff date for pre-proposals will be in spring 2018, with invited full proposals due fall 2018.

Sponsors are strongly encouraged to request orientation meetings and submit pre-proposals well ahead of the deadlines for their target funding round. The CPC has more time for thoughtful discussion of early pre-proposals, which can also help the Committee consider reserving current funds for future use.
