The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program focuses on transforming scientific discovery into products and services with commercial potential and/or societal benefit. The current USDA SBIR program supports small businesses in the creation of innovative, disruptive technologies and enables the application of research advancements from conception into the market. USDA is a granting agency with broad topics including Air, Water & Soils, Rural Development, Small & Mid-size Farms, Animal Products & Protection, Food Science & Nutrition to name just a few.

This workshop will address unique features of the USDA program and provide a four-step method to prepare a Phase I proposal including the important cost proposal. Finally, it will conclude with some advice on preparing and submitting a Phase I USDA SBIR proposal.
