Summary

The Department of Health and Human Services is seeking proposals for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II program. The program aims to stimulate technological innovation in the private sector and strengthen the role of small businesses in meeting federal research and development needs.

Under this opportunity, NIDILRR will make four grants with a 24-month project period divided into two 12-month budget periods. The funding specifics and performance goals can be found in the solicitation notice on grants.gov. The application due date for this solicitation is March 5, 2024.

Description

The purpose of the Federal 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 (R/R&D) needs, and improve the return on investment from Federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the nation. The specific purpose of NIDILRR's SBIR program is to improve the lives of people with disabilities through R/R&D 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 people with disabilities and promote their health and function, community living, or employment outcomes. Phase II projects expand on the results of and further pursue the development of Phase I projects. NIDILRR will make four grants under this opportunity. Grants will have a 24-month project period with two 12-month budget periods.
