Nov. 17, 2006 -- The state of Kentucky has begun accepting applications for participation in a program that matches federal Small Business Innovation Research or Small Business Technology Transfer Research grants with state funds.

The first phase of the program will provide as much as $100,000 in state grants to help smaller firms explore the merits and feasibility of a given technology. The second and third phases will offer larger sums for research, development, and commercialization.
