Local innovators, entrepreneurs and institutions working to create jobs in high-growth sectors such as health care, technology, research and design, and alternative energy are eligible for two funding opportunities.
The Innovation Providence Implementation Council has announced $110,000 will be available for a third round of grant funding, particularly for short-term projects likely to begin within the next six months. Grants will range from $10,000 to $25,000 each. The council was created in 2008 by the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce and other local partners.
Those eligible to apply for the grants include institutions of higher education, hospitals, industry trade associations, for-profit private sector businesses and nonprofit organizations, as well as past recipients of the innovation grants. More details are available on the Chamber’s website: www.providencechamber.com.
