Missouri Technology Corporation Infrastructure Grant Program for Innovate SOMO

The objective of the Physical Infrastructure Grant Program is to provide state funding to support the following physical infrastructure needs within the state:
  • Flexible and below-market-rate commercial office space, including co-working spaces, private offices, meeting rooms, and access to high-speed internet, in regions where entrepreneurs lack access to these resources;
  • Specialized or sector-specific services, facilities, and other infrastructure, including but not limited to wet lab space and Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF), that would otherwise be unavailable in an area/region; and
  • Infrastructure that is broadly recognized as a center for entrepreneurship for the community/region, helping elevate the role of innovation and entrepreneurship in the economy.
