The Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982 (Act), Pub.


97-219, established the SBIR program.

The Act requires certain agencies, including the Department, to reserve a statutory percentage of their extramural R&D budgets for two phases of the three-phase SBIR program (see http://sbir.gov/about/about-sbir for more information on the program).

Phase I awards are to determine, insofar as possible, the scientific or technical merit, feasibility, and commercial potential of R&D projects submitted under the SBIR program.

Phase I awards are for amounts up to $75,000 and for a period of up to six months.

Phase II projects continue the development of Phase I projects.

Funding is based on the results achieved in Phase I and the scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of the proposed Phase II project.

Only Phase I grantees are eligible to apply for Phase II funding.

Phase II awards are for amounts up to $575,500 over a period of two years.

In Phase III, the small business grantee pursues commercial applications of the Phase I and II R&D.

The SBIR program does not fund Phase III.

All SBIR projects funded by NIDILRR must address the needs of individuals with disabilities.

(See 29 U.S.C.
