Wyoming Program Helps Small Business Land Federal Grants
Federal grants are difficult to achieve. The applications are extensive and the competition is keen. So, the WSSI/STTR program offers help in the form of grant money that small businesses can use to help them compete against larger companies, educational institutions and other organizations for federal grants.
The grants are about $5,000 each, and the funding comes from the Wyoming Business Council. Last year the WSSI/STTR program awarded 13 grants, and many of these small businesses were able to successfully be awarded federal grants.
The purpose of the grant program is to help small businesses in rural areas compete for federal grants. WSSI/STTR wants to help, understanding how important it is for the success of these small businesses to earn a federal grant.
