Colorado will receive a $363,135 federal grant to promote clean-technology exports to China and Mexico.

State officials announced the grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce Thursday.

The Colorado International Trade Office will receive the federal matching funds over the next three years to support the export of clean technologies and services by Colorado companies to China and Mexico.

The grant will support a program called CO-EXist, or Colorado Export of Innovative and Sustainable Technologies, which works with small and medium-sized Colorado companies.
