The objective of this RFI is to obtain a general overview of entities that may be capable of performing CCW Sector Intermediary activities in key industry sectors, as described therein. CCW and ESD are seeking detailed responses from a diverse set of possible Intermediaries. Information obtained from RFI responders could be used to inform future solicitations and fund allocations.

Potential responders may contact ESD at any time with questions. CCW partners and stakeholders are encouraged to share this RFI broadly, to any and all potential responders.
