A new grant opportunity from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) at ACL has been announced under the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR), Phase II. An estimated four grants will be awarded to small businesses.

The purpose of the 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 needs, and improve the return on investment from federally-funded research for economic and social benefits to the nation. The goal is to improve the lives of people with disabilities through research and development of products generated by small businesses, and to increase the commercial application of NIDILRR-supported research results and development products.

Phase I grantees from fiscal year 2015 and 2016 are eligible to apply. Applicants must also continue to be small business concerns. Phase II is intended to expand upon the results of and to further pursue the development of Phase I projects.
