How to Participate
The CalNEXT team will evaluate public submissions once a quarter. If the Project submission is a good fit for the program, you could be paired with a program partner to help you prepare the submission for evaluation. In the following month complete submissions will be evaluated. All Projects will be evaluated against the same review criteria. Then approximately 6-8 weeks after the submission deadline the CalNEXT team will let you know if your Project has been selected.
The next submission deadline is November 30, 2023. Submissions will be accepted from now until that date but will not be reviewed until after the deadline. For more information on the current quarterly Request for Ideas (RFI), view the Q4 RFI here.
The CalNEXT team is accountable for implementing Projects. If a submitted Project is approved, the submitter will be paired with one of the program partner organizations for support. This support may range from general Program support or to direct implementation support.
