State Trade & Export Promotion (STEP) Grant

The STEP grant, funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, supports state programs that help small businesses access global markets and increase sales of world-class, American-made goods and services.
We have received a new round of STEP grant funding from the SBA for 2014-2015.   Applications for Export Vouchers are welcome, with the requirement that the Qualifying Export Activity must take place between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015.

If you have any questions, please contact:
