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 21 between October 1, 2013 and October 31, 2013. The
deadline to submit an application is 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 31, 2013. 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 20 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 contract to the Cabinet for Economic Development, the Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation
administers the Kentucky SBIR-STTR Matching Funds Program. If you have any questions relating to the program or
the application process, contact:
