The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support development of advanced nuclear energy technology. DOE is soliciting proposals for cost-shared projects to develop innovative, industry-driven reactor designs and accompanying technologies with high potential to advance nuclear power in the United States.
DOE expects to make up to $30 million or more available for awards in FY 2018 subject to the availability of funding. The FOA will be open for a five-year period accepting applications on a year-round basis, with a quarterly selection process. Additional funding will be available in future years, as allocated by Congress.
Through this competition, DOE encourages U.S. companies to partner with other U.S. federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities to share expertise needed to successfully develop these innovative technologies.
Information is available at www.id.doe.gov. The initial application due date is January 31, 2018.

Note: National laboratory infrastructure support is not covered under this FOA. The NSUF utilizes an annual infrastructure gap analysis as a basis for determining specific needs and locations for addressing national laboratory infrastructure support. National laboratories are encouraged to submit scientific infrastructure needs through the Request for Information (RFI) - University, National Laboratory, Industry and International Input on Potential Office of Nuclear Energy Infrastructure Investments (DE-SOL-0008318). The official copy of the RFI is located at Grants.gov and a courtesy copy is linked below.

DOE-NE has released the FY 2018 Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). The FOA contains workscopes for NEUP, NEET, and NSUF research areas. Changes to the FY 2018 CINR FOA include:
- No pre-applications for NEUP or NEET-CTD R&D
- Two new workscopes for R&D
- No IRP workscope
- PI’s are only eligible to compete as many applications as they may have with existing eligibility requirements
- All NSUF applications require the NSUF Access Request (a combination of the LOI and pre-app)
- NSUF-2 will be out of phase (delayed) with respect to the rest of the FY 2018 CINR process
- FY 2018 projects are scheduled to begin on Oct 1, 2018
Note: The NSUF Access Requests (required for NSUF-1, NEAMS-2, and NSUF-2) are due on an aggressive timeline so PIs who are submitting in these areas are encouraged to engage with NSUF staff to complete their applications as soon as possible. Guidance for submitting the Access Request is available here:
