Thirty Connecticut firms are getting $4 million in federal and private funding to enable them to qualifty for federal technology-research grants, authorities say.

Connecticut Innovations Inc. said Monday thefunding is through its 17-month-old Connecticut SBIR Acceleration and Commercialization Program.

According to officials, there are two funding initiatives under the Connecticut SBIR Acceleration and Commercialization Program: the SBIR Phase I Matching Grant initiative and the Commercialization Loans initiative.

The SBIR Phase I Matching Grant initiative is designed to help recent federal SBIR Phase I winners from Connecticut advance their Phase I feasibility studies and enhance their chances of winning a coveted Phase II research award of $1 million, they said.

It encourages collaborations, especially with Connecticut universities. The CI grants, of up to $40,000 apiece, may be spent on generating additional data, protecting intellectual property, conducting market research, licensing and more. Qualifying companies may apply for up to two grants annually.
