Kentucky has implemented a program that matches both Phase 1 and Phase 2 federal SBIR and STTR awards to our high-tech small businesses.
If you are an SBIR or STTR awardee from Kentucky, or are willing to relocate to Kentucky, you can apply for funds from the commonwealth
to match your federal SBIR-STTR awards.
The Kentucky SBIR-STTR Matching Funds Program will accept applications for Round 23 between April 1, 2014 and April 30, 2014. The deadline to submit an application is 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 30, 2014. The awards process will be competitive and include an external review.
All NEW APPLICANTS MUST REGISTER AND TAKE THE ELIGIBILITY TEST TO RECEIVE A USERNAME AND PASSWORD. FOLLOW THE LINK TO THE NEW APPLICATION SITE:
The Program Guidelines for Round 23 have been REVISED and are posted on the application site.
Additional solicitations are planned. The amount of funds available for awards each time will be determined by the Cabinet for Economic Development.
Under a contract to the Cabinet for Economic Development, the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation will administer the Kentucky SBIR-STTR Matching Funds Program. If you have any questions relating to the program or the application process, please contact:
