Fight for Scientific Progress
Negotiations to achieve the bipartisan reauthorization of strengthened Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs have intensified. These programs are another important facet of U.S. economic strength and competitiveness; they provide seed funding to help empower small businesses to innovate solutions in the health, defense, and other arenas. Unless Congress acts, SBIR/STTR will expire September 30, 2022, squandering a high impact incentive for U.S. entrepreneurism and job creation. Using this editable email, urge your representatives in Congress to stress with Congressional leadership the importance of reauthorizing SBIR/STTR before September 30, 2022.
