New Small Business Grant Funds Available for North Carolina Technology Companies


The North Carolina Department of Commerce announced  that applications are now being accepted for a new round of grantmaking from the One North Carolina Small Business Program, a key source of capital for North Carolina’s emerging technology companies.  The state program works in conjunction with two federal technology grants, the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

The One North Carolina Small Business Program’s Incentive Funds and Matching Funds initiatives are administered by the North Carolina Department of Commerce on behalf of the North Carolina Board of Science, Technology & Innovation (BSTI).  Grant awards help small businesses in the state develop and commercialize innovative new technologies, in the process growing jobs and investment in their communities.

Applications to the One North Carolina Small Business Program can be accepted until June 30, 2022, or until funds have been exhausted for the program’s 2021-2022 fiscal year funding cycle.

The Office of Science, Technology, & Innovation, a division of the North Carolina Department of Commerce, administers the One North Carolina Small Business Program on behalf of the Board.  Information on the state’s economic development Tier system is available at: nccommerce.com/grants-incentives/county-distress-rankings-tiers.

Details on how to apply for either the Incentive or Matching grant solicitations, as well as additional program information and application instructions, are posted at: nccommerce.com/grants-incentives/technology-funds/one-north-carolina-small-business-program.
