Yes, although we advise against doing so. The Small Business Technology Transfer (R41/R42) and Small Business Innovation Research (R43/R44) activity codes better cater to the unique needs and objectives of small businesses. Small businesses applying through those activity codes tend to enjoy higher success rates as well.

For a list of current funding opportunities using the R41/R42 and R43/R44 activity codes, refer to our Opportunities & Announcement page filtered for small business grant types. If your aim is to submit an investigator-initiated application, read our July 7, 2022 article NIH Small Business Opportunities and Priority Topics for 2022 to get started.
