This will be the only opportunity to submit a Phase II application for a Phase I award made under this FOA.

Grantees that select a Phase I period of performance of 9 months or less will be able to complete their Phase I project prior to submission of their Phase II grant application.

Grantees that select a Phase I longer than 9 months will be able to continue research and development (R&D) after their Phase II application is submitted but will not be able to utilize these results in the preparation of their Phase II application.

Phase I is to evaluate, insofar as possible, the scientific or technical merit and feasibility of ideas that appear to have commercial potential and/or substantial application in support of DOE mission research.

The grant application should concentrate on research that will contribute to proving scientific or technical feasibility of the approach or concept.

Success in a DOE Phase I is a prerequisite to further DOE support in Phase II.

Additional Information of Eligibility:
SBIR/STTR program eligibility requirements are in place to ensure that the funds go only to small, independent United States (U.S.) businesses.

The regulations, 13 CFR 121, include restrictions about (1) the type of firm, (2) its ownership structure, and (3) the firm’s size in terms of the number of employees.

The purpose of the requirement regarding type of firm is to target the awards to firms with an economic interest in developing the idea or research into a commercial application.

The purpose of the ownership requirement is to limit the program to independent firms controlled by U. S. citizens or permanent resident aliens as a way of maximizing the likelihood that the funding will stimulate innovative activity within the U. S. economy.

The purpose of the size restriction (number of employees of the firm and its affiliates) is to limit program funding to small business concerns with a unique capacity for innovation, which are more likely to be constrained by lack of access to such funding.
