Get Assistance Applying for Federal Research & Development Grants


To help bring innovative concepts to the marketplace and help Oregon businesses grow, we assist qualified Oregon companies in preparing proposals for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. SBIR/STTR are competitive federal grant programs that award funding to small businesses to engage in research and development that have the potential to commercialize new technologies.

Since 2008, Oregon businesses have received $69 million in SBIR/STTR grants for research and development.
