To qualify for Small Business Research Grants (BREGs), applicants must meet certain basic requirements:
Be a small business owner.
Be a qualified small business.
Be in the small business research sector, which means having at least five employees and being primarily engaged on the research of businesses in the U.S.
Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or an employee of the U.S. and a resident of the 50 states.
Be at least 16 years of age or 21 years of age by the start of the award year, whichever is later.
Not be a member of the Federal Government for at least one period of the year during which the research activities are conducted.
Not be a federal contract employee.
What if I am interested in applying for the BREG award but have not been accepted?
Please go to the “Applications” link in the above-mentioned link. Be sure to read carefully the following:
Application process may be delayed or even not completed.
Application fees may increase, depending on whether the applicant is an individual, business, corporation, or university.
If you are not considered qualified despite your eligibility, you may continue to meet the qualification criteria.
If you qualify, but you cannot afford to pay the application fee, your application may be denied.
If you are denied, you may appeal within 10 days of the receipt of your denial letter.
If you are not a BREG grant applicant, you may not apply for an award.
What happens if I have not met the requirements? Can I still apply?
If you have not met the requirements and would like to renew your eligibility, you may be eligible to apply for a new BREG grant. We recommend that you contact your local Small Business Administration office first for application information. To begin the process of renewing the BREG grant, submit your application for renewal by mail. Be sure to include your new mailing address and daytime telephone number. If you do not receive a response within 15 business days of your request for renewal, please call us at 1-877-731-2923. Our office will assist you in getting your grant reinstated.
Can I apply for multiple grants?
Once each application is submitted and the application fee is paid, only one grant will be processed by the grant office at any time. (You may apply for more grants than there are funding options.)
