NIFA administers the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR-STTR) programs, which focus on projects that enhance American agriculture, rural health care, rural communities and the environment. Qualified, established small businesses with proposals for high quality, advanced research are eligible for competitive awards.
Research must relate to important scientific problems and opportunities in agriculture that may lead to significant public benefit. USDA encourages small businesses to partner with university and federal lab researchers to develop technology, processes or products.
