Matching Grants Leverage Program

NYSTAR reviews and coordinates requests for New York State matching grants and support letters to strengthen applicants' proposals to federal agencies, foundations, and other grant-making organizations. Higher education and not-for-profit research institutions in New York State are eligible to apply for these state matching funds or a letter of support. The purpose of this program is to attract more federal R&D funding to support technology development and commercialization efforts in New York State.

The Matching Grants Leverage Program is currently on hold while new guidelines are being finalized. Please contact (518) 292-5700 if you have any questions.
