DOE SBIR/STTR initial Phase II awardees are eligible to receive a second Phase II award from DOE, either a Phase IIA or Phase IIB. Additionally, SBIR awardees may be eligible for a third Phase II award, the Phase IIC. Phase II A awards are designed for projects requiring more time and funding than available with a single Phase II award to complete prototype or process development, and are a maximum of $1,100,000. Phase IIB awards are designed for projects that have successfully completed prototype or process development and require additional R&D funding to transition an innovation towards commercialization, and are a maximum of $1,100,000. Phase IIC awards are a maximum of $1,100,000 and require a 1:1 match of third-party investment. Availability of these programs is dependent on the FOA and topic that awardees were funded under.
Awardees are always encouraged to seek other funding mechanisms to transition their work into a Phase III.
