Cooperative agreements to USA for-profit entities for research and development of technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions from buildings. Applicants must submit a concept paper prior to submitting a full application. Applicants must focus on one of two main categories: Building Materials or Building Designs.
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are Government-wide programs authorized under Section 9 of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. § 638). The objectives of the SBIR program are to (1) stimulate technological innovation in the private sector, (2) strengthen the role of Small Business Concerns in meeting Federal R&D needs, (3) increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal R&D activities, (4) foster and encourage participation by socially and economically disadvantaged and women-owned Small Business Concerns, and (5) improve the return on investment from Federally funded research and economic benefits to the Nation. The objective of the STTR program is to stimulate cooperative partnerships of ideas and technologies between Small Business Concerns and partnering Research Institutions through Federally funded R&D activities.
The goal of the HESTIA program is to support the development of technologies that nullify embodied greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while simultaneously transforming buildings into net carbon storage structures. Specifically, projects funded under the HESTIA Program will develop and demonstrate building materials and whole-building designs that are net carbon negative on a life cycle basis by utilizing atmospheric CO2 or CH4 from a wide range of potential feedstocks (e.g., forestry and purpose-grown products, agricultural residues, marine derived, direct carbon utilization) in the production process. HESTIA metrics are:
This FOA supports the development of viable technologies to achieve these metrics in a cost-effective manner to meet building construction industry demand for low-cost.
For more information about the program, see page 10 of the FOA in Supporting Documents below.
For information about Program Objectives, see page 16 of the FOA in Supporting Documents below.
Each applicant must indicate which one of the two technological areas they are applying to. For Technical Categories of Interest, see page 18 of the FOA in Supporting Documents below.
Applicants must apply for a Combined Phase I/II/IIS Award. Combined Phase I/II/IIS Awards are intended to develop transformational technologies with disruptive commercial potential. Such commercial potential may be evidenced by (1) the likelihood of follow-on funding by private or non-SBIR/STTR sources if the project is successful, or (2) the Small Business Concern's record of successfully commercializing technologies developed under prior SBIR/STTR awards. Phase IIS awards are a “sequential” (i.e., additional) Phase II award, intended to allow the continued development of promising energy technologies.
GrantWatch ID#: 199617
ARPA-E anticipates making approximately 10-15 awards under this FOA. ARPA-E may, at its discretion, issue one, multiple, or no awards.
Combined Phase I/II/IIS awards may be funded up to $3,721,115.
ARPA-E reserves the right to select all or part of a proposed project (i.e. only Phase I, or only Phase I and Phase II). In the event that ARPA-E selects Phase I only or Phase I/II only, then the maximum award amount for a Phase I award is $259,613 and the maximum amount for a Phase I/II award is $1,990,364.
The period of performance for funding agreements may not exceed 48 months for a Combined Phase I/II/IIS Award. ARPA-E expects the start date for funding agreements to be September 2022, or as negotiated.
