Full Text of Announcement I. Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of the SBIR program is four-fold: PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77051 • Stimulate technological innovation in the private sector. • Encourage participation in innovation and entrepreneurship by socially and economically disadvantaged persons. • Strengthen the role of small business in meeting Federal research and development (R&D) needs. • Increase private-sector commercialization of innovations derived from U.S. Department of Education (Department) R&D funding. Background The Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982 (Act), Public Law 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 the threephase SBIR 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 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 $500,000 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 NIDRR must address the needs of individuals with disabilities. (See 29 U.S.C. 760.) Project activities may include: • Conducting manufacturing-related R&D that encompasses improvements in existing methods or processes, or wholly new processes, machines, or systems, that benefit individuals with disabilities; • Exploring the uses of technology to ensure equal access to education, employment, community environments, and information for individuals with disabilities; and • Improving the quality and utility of disability and rehabilitation research. Executive Order 13329 states that continued technological innovation is critical to a strong manufacturing sector in the United States economy and seeks to ensure that Federal agencies assist the private sector in its manufacturing innovation efforts.
