CT NSF Grants

While federal, state, and corporate research grants support researchers at an institution, they also play an important role in supporting local economies in a manner that sometimes can get overlooked.

Here we are showing a visualization of all NSF grants obtained by businesses and higher education institutions within the State of Connecticut between the 2011 and 2022 fiscal years distributed by municipality. Circle sizes are proportional to the dollar value of grants obtained. Feel free to explore the visualization by adjusting filters or just panning and zooming on the map.

Jobs Data

The operational expenditures of businesses and institutions receiving NSF grants have both direct and indirect economic effects on jobs within the state of Connecticut. The direct effects are the jobs that are supported as a result of the initial injections of spending into the state economy.

These consist of total personnel costs and other contractual or commodity expenses. This spending generates two spillover effects: indirect and induced. Indirect effects include jobs supported as a result of local businesses spending on goods and services purchased by institutions receiving NSF grants; these businesses use payments from NSF grant awardees for supplies, employee salaries, and so on, creating a cycle of spending that impacts the state economy. Induced effects include additional jobs supported as a result of household spending generated by business activities that are directly or indirectly supported by the NSF grant. The total number of jobs is therefore the combination of direct, indirect and induced effects.
