Largest Grant Won: $200,000,000

CFS secured a $200 Million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy for ENTEK Manufacturing, LLC to aid in the construction of a new lithium battery separator plant. Upon completion, the plant is expected to produce enough material domestically for approximately 1.4 million electric vehicles. The DOE grant is part of $2.8 billion in funding from the bipartisan infrastructure law aimed at manufacturing materials for essential component parts of batteries for electric vehicles. Upon the announcement of the award, President Biden spoke with the grantees, including ENTEK President Kim Medford, in a public livestream to discuss the positive impacts these projects will bring to U.S. manufacturing (as pictured in the image).

Most Competitive Grant Won: RAISE

This year, CFS won $1,099,455 in USDOT RAISE grant funding for Plaquemines Parish, LA. RAISE grants are highly competitive, where typically less than 10% of submitted proposals receive funding. The awarded funds will replace a gravel roadway to the Pointe-a-la-Hache ferry facility with new hard-surface roadways, turn lanes, and a parking area to accommodate commuters. The existing ferry access road and facility has been damaged over the years by various storms, high river currents, and erosion, and the grant will resolve a major mobility issue for residents. Notably, the improved ferry crossing will enable this historically disadvantaged community to access an estimated more than 700 new jobs, and improved connectivity will also provide safety benefits for the community in the event of another major disaster.
