Pete CodellaUtah Innovation Center

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a Broad Agency Announcement of the EPA SBIR Phase I Solicitation. The goal of EPA’s SBIR Program is to support commercialization of innovative technologies that help support EPA’s mission of protecting human health and the environment. In order to support the Agency’s mission, the lifecycle environmental impacts of the technology, including (if applicable) minimizing resource use, minimizing toxicity of materials, efficient use of water and energy, minimizing pollution, and minimizing the impacts of disposal should be considered.

The EPA anticipates making approximately twenty (20) Phase I awards, each in the amount up to $100,000 and not to exceed a six (6) month term of performance. The closing date for SBIR Phase I proposals is August 3, 2021 at 10 a.m. MT.
