The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announces the release of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program Solicitation to develop and commercialize new environmental technologies. EPA is one of 11 federal agencies that participate in the SBIR Program as a result of the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982. EPA is calling for small businesses to apply for Phase I awards up to $100,000 to demonstrate proof of concept in one of the following topic areas: air and climate, manufacturing, toxic chemicals, water, building materials, food waste, and homeland security. Phase I awardees are eligible to receive Phase II funding, up to $300,000 for two years, through an additional application process.
SBIR companies cover a broad spectrum of research areas and are supported by EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) research program. EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program conducts research to help communities make better decisions to sustain a healthy society and environment. SHC provides useful science and tools for decision makers at the federal, regional, state, and community levels to help communities advance sustainability as well as achieve regulatory compliance.
