$750k to Serve Families (

Family Proud is a noteworthy startup that helps our service men & women and their families care for each other.AFWERX awarded them a phase-2 SBIR.

A lesson for us all to learn from this is how broad a range of areas are covered by SBIR in general and AFWERX (the United States Air entrepreneurship support program) in particular. Congratulations to the Family Proud team. 

I always like to see valuable work recognized.

The Air Force AFWERX program has awarded a $750k SBIR Phase II grant to Family Proud with the intention of making it simpler for Airmen and their families to care for one another.
