CRCF accelerates innovation and drives economic growth in Virginia by advancing solutions to important state, national, and global problems through technology research, development, and commercialization.

The CRCF team can be reached at crcf@cit.org and will field questions.

The LOI process has been revised for FY2020. This year the LOI will call for more information about the proposed technology and why funding its development would be a good investment for the Commonwealth. Each set of Program Guidelines and the LOI template -- both available from the Documents window on the specific program page link on the CIT.org page  -- will identify the information sought and specific administrative criteria such as maximum number of pages and character count, font and font size, and margins.

LOIs are subject to internal review and selection to move forward to agency submission.
