The State Trade Expansion Program (STEP), funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration, helps Kansas non-exporters get started and existing exporters expand into additional foreign markets. Since the program’s inception in 2012, more than 160 Kansas small businesses have participated and achieved more than $33 million in actual export sales.
Any small business located in Kansas that complies with SBA size standards
STEP applications are accepted year-round.
A STEP Readiness Questionnaire, SBA Certification and SBA Self-Representation form will be required to be submitted with your application.
