The Consolidated Appropriations Resolution of 2003 (Pub. L. 108-7) provided $46,694,500 in Research and Technology funds for contracts, grants and necessary expenses of programs and studies relating to housing and urban problems. Included in this amount are $39,243,250 for core Research and Technology and $7,451,250 in funding for the Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) program. The majority of HUD's Research and Technology funding is awarded through competitive solicitations. The unsolicited proposal is another method used by HUD to fund research and development. An unsolicited proposal is submitted to support an idea, method or approach by individuals and organizations solely on the submitter's initiative. Funding of unsolicited proposals is considered a noncompetitive action. An unsolicited proposal demonstrates a unique and innovative concept or a unique capability of the submitter, offers a concept or service not otherwise available to the Government and does not resemble the substance of a pending competitive action. All unsolicited proposals and the resulting award of cooperative agreements include substantial cost sharing on the part of the submitter/awardee.

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance for this program is 14.506.
