Trade Expansion

Companies are always looking for grant opportunities as well as a way to increase sales, so why not consider exporting?

The Kentucky Export Initiative (KEI) provides information to help you grow your international sales. Eligibility for this program is determined by using the United States Small Business Administration’s Small Business Size Standards.

Since 2011, the Kentucky Export Initiative has provided financial assistance to nearly 200 Kentucky companies through the State Trade Expansion Program (STEP). The STEP program provides grants that can be used for a variety of trade services.
