NMSBA Leveraged Projects: Call For Proposals

NMSBA News:

The New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) program is accepting proposals for 2015 leveraged projects.

NMSBA leveraged projects allow multiple small businesses that share technical challenges to request assistance collectively for a project funded in the range of $20,000 to $100,000 (the sum of the assistance for which each participating company is eligible). Leveraged projects must be completed by the end of calendar year 2015.

Interested small businesses may submit proposals for 2015 leveraged projects by midnight, Feb. 3. Successful applicants will explain the technical challenge faced by the small businesses, the unique (i.e., not available in the private sector) laboratory capability to be used in addressing the technical challenge, and the expected economic benefit to the participating businesses.

A limited number of proposals will be selected to move forward to the presentation phase. Selected applicants will be notified Feb. 9, and will be required to present their proposal to the NMSBA Advisory Council either March 18 in Albuquerque, or March 19 in Santa Fe.

Applicants whose proposals are selected for award will be notified by March 26.
