Superfund Research Program

Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) (R43/44) and Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) (R41/42) grants are awarded to foster the commercialization of technologies, products, and devices developed by the SRP and others. Please refer to the Hazardous Substances Detection and Remediation Program for information about the SRP SBIR/STTR program. The SRP SBIR/STTR grants are made under the NIH Omnibus Solicitation. Please refer to the NIH SBIR and STTR website for the most current funding opportunity announcement.

See the SBIR/STTR grantee flyer(394 KB) for more on recently funded grantees and the SRP small business program.

On October 3, 2016, the SRP, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture presented a webinar, "U.S. Small Business Funding Opportunities (SBIR/STTR) for Environmental Technologies." This webinar was designed to help small businesses and academic researchers better understand (1) the different agencies that fund environmental technologies and (2) the fundamental goals of the SBIR and STTR programs. You can view an archive of the webinar on EPA's CLU-IN Training & Events Web page.
