Both Oregon and Washington offer a matching grant program that helps businesses engage in export activities. The grants are paired with expertise from agency staff to help navigate the path to exporting. The federal funding comes from the US Small Business Administration’s State Trade Expansion Program to offset some of the costs associated with entering new markets such as trade show participation, travel costs, website localization, or consulting. These can even be used for some conferences in the US if they target international markets. Learn more: Oregon businesses or Washington businesses.
