Category: Business Development. II. Number of Projects Funded. IEED anticipates award of approximately twenty (20) to twenty-five (25) grants under this announcement ranging in value from approximately $25,000 to $75,000. The program can fund projects only one year at a time. IEED will use a competitive evaluation process based on criteria described in the Review and Selection Process section at section IX of this notice. III. Background. The Office of the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs, through IEED, is soliciting proposals from Indian Tribes, as defined at 25 U.S.C. 5304(e), for grant funding to retain consultants to perform feasibility studies of economic development opportunities located in an Opportunity Zone. Consultants may include universities and colleges, private consulting firms, non-academic/nonprofit entities, or others. The feasibility studies will empower Tribes to make informed decisions regarding their economic futures. Feasibility studies may concern the viability of an economic development project or business or the practicality of a technology a Tribe may choose to pursue in an Opportunity Zone. These studies will also address how a proposed economic development project, business, or technology can attract investment from an Opportunity Fund, which is an investment vehicle set up either as a partnership or corporation, for investing in eligible property or businesses located in an Opportunity Zone (26 U.S.C. 1400Z– 2(d)). The IEED administers this program through its Division of Economic Development (DED). These grants will be funded under a non-recurring appropriation of the BIA budget. Congress appropriates funds on a year-to-year basis. Thus, while some projects may extend over several years, funding for successive years depends on each fiscal year’s appropriations.
