Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) Phase II

ACL has announced the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program (Phase II) funding opportunity from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). The purpose of the SBIR program is to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector, strengthen the role of small business in meeting federal research or research and development needs, and improve the return on investment from federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the nation. The goal is to improve the lives of people with disabilities through research and development of products generated by small businesses, and to increase the commercial application of NIDILRR-supported research results and development products.
All SBIR projects funded by NIDILRR must address the needs of individuals with disabilities and promote their health and function, community living, or employment outcomes.
Applications for this opportunity are due on Monday, June 6, 2022.
