I have reviewed these and the SNR is high enough that a good proposal 
has a decent chance.

I have never applied for one. They require some technical innovation 
as a business plan. So you have to stress that usability is 
essentially a technical problem you are solving.

You might also discuss the fact that open technology inherently 
provides an increase in working knowledge as its transparency allows 
others to learn. Every customer you help has a unique problem yet the 
code and support you provide can be reused by others.

You could do worse than to try one of these.

best regards,
