The grant provides a 50 percent reimbursement, up to $12,500 per fiscal year, for eligible activities. IMAGE is funded, in part, through the U.S. Small Business Administration’s State Trade Expansion Program.

Popular qualifying activities include, but are not limited to, exhibiting at trade shows, participating in trade missions, international advertising, translation services and website development.

The application period is now open, and the final deadline to apply is 3 p.m. March 29, 2019. Among other criteria, grant awards are administered on a first-come, first-served basis and are contingent upon availability of funds. The deadline to complete all proposed activities is September 29, 2019.
