Do biotech companies get any kind of subsidies or funding from the United States government and if so, what are they and how much are they?

A:Expert Answer

No, I am not aware of any subsidies from the U.S. government which are given to biotech companies. Our companies do compete for grants, but those opportunities are more limited than what’s available to public institutions or small businesses. The U.S. government also provides grants to academic and research institutions for public research projects on agricultural technologies. In fact, it’s all public record.  For instance, you can research the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant program here:
