The FY2017 solicitation is closed and applications are under review. Award announcements for the $2.8 million round are planned for early June 2017. Materials and information found within the solicitation pages will remain available through this time.

For any questions regarding the CRCF program, email the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals submitted to CRCF undergo a multi-stage review process, which includes award recommendations made by the Research and Technology Investment Advisory Committee (RTIAC) to the CIT Board of Directors and culminates with award decisions made by the Board. CRCF awards contribute to the Commonwealth’s overall plan to enhance economic development through technology research and commercialization and, as such, CRCF awards must further the goals set forth in the Commonwealth Research and Technology Strategic Roadmap. In addition to identifying research areas worthy of economic development and institutional focus, the Roadmap provides a framework for aligning key industry sectors within the state, as prioritized by the research community, which includes but is not limited to the private sector, academia, and economic development professionals.
Since its inception in FY2012, CRCF has announced more than 230 awards. View the growing list of recipients, including our FY2016 awardees.
CRCF Annual Reports are available on Virginia’s Legislative Information System (LIS)’s website. View the FY2016 CRCF Annual Report.
