Up to five awards will be granted.

Additionally, under the Catalyst Water Challenge, MassCEC will provide funding and technical support for projects at the water-energy nexus that deploy water innovation technologies or innovative combinations of existing technologies. Up to two additional awards in the amount of $65,000 each will be given for promising clean water projects.
