Federal and state governments have adopted incentives in the contracting and grant programs for small, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses. Examples include the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Program under which research and development monies are specifically allotted to grants to small businesses for the development of new and innovative studies, research, and technology; and the Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) program. Our attorneys advise clients on the availability of such programs and the conditions under which they operate and assist them in strategically utilizing program benefits.
