Colorado’s Bioscience Industry Awarded Over $23 Million in Funding from Federal Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project Grant and Tax Credit Program


According to the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA), Colorado’s bioscience industry received more than $23 million for 102 different projects in the Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project (QTDP) program, per data posted online Monday by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Colorado ranks in the top ten of states applying for credits and grants under the new program.

Denver, CO, November 06, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Colorado’s bioscience industry received over $23 million for 102 different projects in the Qualifying Therapeutic Discovery Project (QTDP) program, per data posted online November 1 by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The announcement is made by Holli Baumunk, President & CEO of the Colorado BioScience Association (CBSA), who is proud to say that Colorado ranks in the top ten of all states applying for credits and grants under the new program.

“The QTDP program was created under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 which was enacted in March of this year,” Baumunk explains. “This was a unique program in which $1 billion was allocated for tax credits and grants for start-up companies in the bioscience industry to help encourage innovation, advance technology and help ensure that the U.S. remains competitive in this industry."

This new program was designed to provide tax credits and grants to small bioscience firms that show significant potential to produce cost saving therapies, support US jobs and increase US competitiveness.
