Over $2 billion in grants is available annually through the SBIR program. Learn how to win government grants to fund your technology research and development. The SBIR program agencies award monetary grants in phases. Phase I, the startup phase, makes awards of up to $100,000 for approximately 6 months support. Phase II awards grants of up to $750,000, for as many as 2 years, in order to facilitate expansion of Phase I. Research and development work is performed and the developer evaluates the potential for commercialization. Phase II grants are awarded exclusively to Phase I award winners. Phase III is intended to be the time when innovation moves from the laboratory into the marketplace.
