The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites proposals from eligible organizations for funding projects under the Critical Infrastructure Protection Grants Program (CIPGP). The objective of the CIPGP is improvement of the robustness, resilience, and security of information in all the critical infrastructures. This will be accomplished by funding research leading to commercial solutions to those information technology (IT) security problems central to critical infrastructure protection that are not being adequately addressed. A secondary objective of the CIPGP is to cultivate a security-capable and security-conscious community. The issuance of all awards under this program is subject to the availability of funds.
