H.R. 5086 would authorize the appropriation of funds to expand the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program, which provides training and support to participants to move federally funded research and technologies toward commercialization. CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 5086 would cost $5 million over the 2018-2022 period, assuming appropriation of the authorized amounts.
Enacting H.R. 5086 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 5086 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 5086 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
