USDA Small Business Innovation Research Grant Program for Animal Production and Protection

The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant program at the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) makes competitively awarded grants to qualified small businesses to support advanced research related to scientific problems and opportunities in agriculture that could lead to significant public benefit. The SBIR program for Animal Production and Protection provides grants for research to develop knowledge that will enable producers of animals of agricultural importance to increase production efficiency and to assure a reliable, safe supply of animal protein and other animal products while conserving resources and reducing costs of production. Examples of research include the development of marketable technologies that will improve the production efficiency of animals of agricultural importance and/or improve their end products; developing marketable technologies that enhance the nutrient value of the byproducts of the biofuels industry for the purpose of feeding these byproducts to livestock; and development of marketable technology that will improve the health and well-being of animals of agricultural importance.

Eligibility: All qualified for-profit, small U.S. businesses interested in animal production research and development.
