SCRA Member Companies may apply for a variety of non-dilutive grants, each with its own eligibility and review criteria. SCRA grant funding is made possible, in part, by Industry Partnership Fund (IPF) contributions. Contributors receive a dollar-for-dollar South Carolina tax credit, making it a no-cost way to create a direct, positive economic effect and job creation.
Member Companies deemed eligible to apply for SCRA Grant Funding opportunities will be invited by their assigned manager, who will advise them during the process. It is important to note that while acceptance as an SCRA Member Company qualifies you for consideration for funding, it does not guarantee approval.Learn More about becoming a member company
