EPA is one of 12 federal agencies that participate in the SBIR Program established by the Small Business Innovation Development Act of 1982. The purpose of this Act was to strengthen the role of small businesses in federally funded R&D and help develop a stronger national base for technical innovation. A small business is defined as a for-profit organization with no more than 500 employees. See www.epa.gov/ncer/sbir for more information.
