COVID-19 Funding Opportunities



On Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released a final negotiated version of the third supplemental spending bill, H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act recommends $75 million for the National Science Foundation to support the agency’s ongoing RAPID grant response, $945.4 million for the National Institutes of Health to fund centers and institutes related to coronavirus research, $99.5 million to the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, $50 million for the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership to help small and medium sized manufacturers, and $10 million for Manufacturing USA to focus on domestic biopharmaceutical  manufacturing, among other allocations.*

UM's proposal development office will update this web page weekly with relevant funding opportunities released as part of the CARES Act.
