To support nuclear energy innovation by companies working to develop advanced nuclear energy technologies, DOE-NE will provide fiscal year (FY) 2017 funds for small business vouchers to assist applicants seeking access to the world class expertise and capabilities available across the United States (U.S.) DOE complex. This is one component of the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN), a DOE initiative to provide the nuclear industrial community with access to the technical, regulatory, and financial support necessary to move new or advanced nuclear technologies toward commercialization while ensuring the continued safe, reliable, and economic operation of the existing nuclear fleet. 

The objective of GAIN is accelerated and cost effective commercialization of innovative nuclear energy technologies.  A Letter of Intent from a company intending to submit a voucher application is requested and strongly encouraged, but not mandatory, to be submitted no later than March 9, 2017. The Letter of Intent will enable GAIN to assist with identifying appropriate facilities and staff to support the voucher application and to assist the applicant as needed. 

The Nuclear Energy Infrastructure Database (NEID) provides a list and description of many nuclear energy R&D capabilities and can be accessed after an initial registration via the GAIN website,, or directly at
