LARTA, YOUR GATEWAY TO TABA

Federally-funded TABA (Technical and Business Assistance) support

ACCESS AND OPTIMIZE FEDERAL TABA (TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS ASSISTANCE) FUNDS.

Larta will help you through the process of obtaining TABA funds from government agencies. Once you have the funds, we’ll ensure that you get the most out of this additional funding to support commercialization of your innovation.

WE’LL GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE TABA APPLICATION PROCESS

TABA is a new program that gives you funding over and above your SBIR/STTR grant to use for commercialization assistance services from a provider you identify. The application process can be complex but Larta makes it easy to navigate.

Among the agencies that offer TABA, most want you to apply for this option when you submit your SBIR/STTR Phase I or Phase II proposal. We know each agency’s process and help you every step of the way.

APPLICATION HELP

HOW MUCH TABA OR DTA FUNDING CAN YOU RECEIVE?

Some agencies call it by its newer name, TABA. Others still call it DTA for Discretionary Technical Assistance, or just Commercialization Assistance. Some agencies have already introduced TABA, while others are still reviewing implementation. By any name, it’s extra funding for which you may be eligible.

See the chart below for TABA amounts by agency, but be sure to ask for the latest update, including whether TABA amounts are over and above your funding threshold or included in your maximum. We’ll help you figure it out to submit your application.
