Description

The Department of Health and Human Services, specifically the National Institutes of Health, is seeking proposals for the SBIR/STTR Commercialization Readiness Pilot (CRP) Program Technical Assistance and Late Stage Development. This program aims to provide additional support for later stage research and development (R&D) and product development not typically supported through Phase II or Phase IIB grants or contracts. The program is designed to bridge the funding gap between the end of the SBIR/STTR Phase II award and the commercialization stage, often referred to as the "Valley of Death." The program supports new "Type 1" applications from recipients with Phase II or IIB SBIR/STTR awards that have been active within the last 36 months. The program focuses on providing technical assistance and late stage R&D activities, such as regulatory strategy development, intellectual property strategy development, manufacturing assistance, and market research. The program also supports activities related to late stage development, including replication of key studies, optimization of manufacturing processes, animal studies, and development of clinical trial supplies. The program allows for outsourcing of work to third-party technical assistance providers, but the small business should play a substantive role in the oversight and management of the R&D activities. The program does not support clinical trials and cannot be used to pay filing fees for patents or FDA submissions. The program is open for applications until April 6, 2025, and more information can be found on the grants.gov website.
