Forty-four organizations across the U.S. have been selected to receive grants from the Small Business Administration to implement state or regional programs aimed at helping increase entrepreneurs’ federal research and development contracting activities.

SBA said Saturday the 2023 cohort of grantees under the Federal and State Technology Partnership Program include state and local economic development entities, small business technology development centers and women’s business centers and educational institutions.

Each organization can qualify to receive up to $125,000 to offer training, technical assistance and mentorship for startup companies, particularly those in underserved communities.

The agency added a dozen awards for the first year of funds and chose 32 FAST awardees from the 2021 cohort for the second and third years of the funding effort. 

Each grant has a one-year base period and four 12-month options.
