Research Grants for Small Businesses

If your small business is engaged in scientific research and development (R&D), you may qualify for federal grants under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

SBIR and STTR programs encourage small businesses to undertake R&D projects that:

  • Meet federal R&D objectives
  • Have high potential for commercialization

Explore SBIR.gov or the resources below to learn more about specific SBIR and STTR programs throughout the federal government.
