How to Participate
The CalNEXT team will evaluate public submissions once a quarter. Submitters with Idea or Project submissions that might be a good fit for the program, will either be paired with a program partner to prepare the submission for scoring, or will be scored directly. All Projects will be evaluated against the same scoring criteria. Then the CalNEXT team will let you know if your project has been selected.
The next submission deadline is February 23, 2023. Submissions will be accepted from now until that date but will not be reviewed until after the deadline. If you submit an Idea or Project, please prepare to be asked to meet with the CalNEXT team between March 2 and March 16, 2023.
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.
