Application deadline for cycle 2021-1 of the industry funding opportunity announcement (foa) to be extended from april 30, 2021 to may 28, 2021

April 22, 2021

The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) continues to evaluate its fiscal year (FY) 2021 appropriations to determine impacts on and priorities for its various research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) programs. However, due to shifting priorities within the Department in response to the Congressionally-initiated Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program and the need to support multiple high-profile commitments, combined with near-term uncertainties due to the ongoing administration and leadership transition, NE has determined that it is in the best interest of both the advanced reactor technology development community and the Government to extend the application due date for Cycle 2021-1 for the Industry FOA from April 30, 2021 to May 28, 2021. 

Official notification of this date extension has been issued via Amendment 011 to U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development (DE-FOA-0001817).

​At this time, NE anticipates executing two Industry FOA award cycles during FY 2021. As soon as possible following this notification, NE will update its estimate of FY 2021 funds available for Industry FOA awards via a question and answer (Q&A) update posted to the Industry FOA webpage. Such funds will be maximized to the extent practical while balancing NE requirements for industry, university, national laboratory, and cross-cutting RD&D and support of enabling capabilities.
