Maryland's technology development agency announced the launch of a new funding program that will help small businesses in the state develop technologies for the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.

The federally funded program will make grants of up to $75,000 each — $825,000 total —available to 11 small businesses over the next two years, according to the state's Technology Development Corp., or TEDCO. The program will fund collaborative projects between small businesses and the two federal agencies. The Frederick County Office of Economic Development will provide business planning assistance to companies that are awarded grants.
