The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced new key dates for companies considering applying for funding for its Advanced Reactor Demonstration (ARD) program. Morgan Lewis previously reported on the ARD Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), including the different funding pathways available for applicants and key due dates.

DOE has since updated the ARD website to reflect changes to some of these dates, and add additional ones.

Key Dates

Applicants have until May 29 to submit questions on the FOA.

Industry Day will take place on June 2 and 3 (formerly just June 3). Preregistration is required. More information on preregistration is forthcoming.

One-on-one meetings will take place on June 4 and 5. Preregistration is also required, and more information is forthcoming.

The National Laboratory Capabilities webinar is scheduled for June 4. Preregistration is not required. Details on the webinar “to be provided.”

All applicants should submit their Letters of Intent by June 11. Applicants can submit their letters using a DOE username and password.

All applications are due by August 14 (formerly August 12). Applicants can submit their applications using a DOE username and password.
