Number of Projects Funded OIED anticipates award of approximately 10 to 15 grants under this announcement ranging in value from approximately $100,000 annually to $300,000 annually. IBIP awards will be for a three-year period of performance. OIED will use a competitive evaluation process based on criteria described in the Review and Selection Process section (see Section XII. Review and Selection Process, of this notice). III. Background On October 20, 2020, Congress enacted the Native American Business PO 00000 Frm 00029 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16481 Incubators Program Act, Public Law 116–174, codified at 25 U.S.C. 5801 et seq. In the Act, Congress established the Native American Business Incubators Program and required the Secretary of the Interior to promulgate regulations to implement the program. See 25 U.S.C. 5804. The Office of the Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs, through OIED, is soliciting proposals from eligible entities (as outlined in section IV of this notice) for grant funding to establish Indian Business Incubators that serve entrepreneurs with start-up and early-stage businesses who will provide products or services to Tribal reservation communities. The Indian Business Incubator will deliver a range of business services such as: Mentorships, networking, technical assistance, and access to investors. Further, Indian Business Incubators will promote collaboration, address challenges, and provide individually tailored services to overcome the obstacles that are unique to each participating business. The OIED, previously referred to as the Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development (IEED), administers this grant program through the DED funded under a non-recurring appropriation budget. Congress appropriates funds on a year-to-year basis. Thus, while IBIP projects may extend over several years, funding for successive years beyond the original period of performance depends on each fiscal year’s appropriations. The projects awarded are expected to be for a project period of 36 months, with an option of an additional 36 months. The initial grant award will be for a 12-month budget period. The award continuation beyond each 12month budget period will be subject to the availability of funds, satisfactory progress on the part of each recipient, and a determination that continued funding would be in the best interest of the Federal government. Neither the Department of the Interior (DOI) nor Indian Affairs will be held responsible for proposal or application preparation costs. Publication of this solicitation does not obligate DOI or Indian Affairs to award any specific grant or to obligate all or any part of available funds. IV. Eligibility for Funding The Secretary, through the OIED, will solicit proposals for an IBIP grant from eligible entities that are able to provide the physical workspace, equipment, and connectivity necessary for Native businesses and Native entrepreneurs to collaborate and conduct business on a E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1
