Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program

The Bioscience Discovery Evaluation Grant Program (BDEGP) and Cash Fund was first created in statute in 2006; the program will terminate in January 2015; the mission for supporting the development of novel technologies and commercializing those in Colorado will be continued under the new Advanced Industry Accelerator Program. In its seventh year, fiscal year 2012-13, the program continued to offer three targeted grant programs to support the Colorado bioscience industry. The BDEGP has been praised for its effectiveness in leveraging a limited state investment to move promising commercial technologies to market and for supporting the development of the biotechnology industry in Colorado. 

Approximately $27 million from the BDEGP Cash Fund has been granted and garnered more than $38 million in matching funds. Of 220 grants awarded under the program by the end of fiscal year 2013, 159 have completed work while the others are in process.
