Funding for BSU CityLab is provided, in large part, by a Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

From NIH website:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical and behavioral research.  Its mission is science in pursuit of fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to extend healthy life and reduce the burdens of illness and disability.

The NIH is composed of 27 Institutes and Centers.  One of these, the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), provides funding through Science Education Partnership Awards (SEPA) designed to improve life science literacy throughout the nation. These grants bring together biomedical and behavioral researchers, educators, community groups, and other interested organizations in partnerships to create and disseminate programs that give K-12 students and teachers and the general public a better understanding of life sciences.

The NIH Office of Science Education coordinates science education activities at the NIH and develops and sponsors science education projects. These programs serve elementary, secondary, and college students and teachers and the public.

Bridgewater State University

BSU CityLab is based on the campus of Bridgewater State University.  The University’s administration endorses and helps fund CityLab through its Center for the Advancement of Science Exploration (CASE).  Members of the BSU science faculty contribute . . .

As part of its mission, BSU CityLab promotes science partnership activities to strengthen pedagogy for pre- and in-service teachers and to improve outcomes and increase science enthusiasm among diverse students.
