Secretary of Energy Rick Perry Issues Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer Funding Opportunity Announcement

Submitted by on November 30, 2017 – 4:25 pmNo Comment

(U.S. Department of Energy)  U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry has issued the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) second Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs for Fiscal Year 2018.  The Phase I Release 2 FOA, with approximately $16 million in available funding, will provide funding for innovations that address multiple research and development programs throughout DOE:

  • Office Of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation
  • Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability
  • Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
  • Office of Environmental Management
  • Office of Fossil Energy
  • Office of Fusion Energy Sciences
  • Office of High Energy Physics
  • Office of Nuclear Energy

“U.S. small businesses are a crucial aspect in driving innovation and creating jobs in our economy,” said Secretary Perry. “The SBIR and STTR programs are an excellent way for small businesses and the federal government to team up to advance scientific research and development, creating a more secure energy future for America.”

Phase I grants are 6-12 months in duration with maximum award amounts of $150,000 or $225,000, depending on the research topic.  Small businesses that successfully complete their research in Phase I will compete for funding in FY 2019 to carry out prototype or processes research and development during Phase II.  Phase II grants are up to 2 years in duration with maximum award amounts of $1 million or $1.5 million, depending on the research topic.    

The SBIR and STTR programs were created by Congress to leverage small businesses to advance innovation at federal agencies. Additional information on the DOE SBIR and STTR programs can be found on the programs’ website HERE.
