1. A user equipment (UE) for wireless communication, comprising:
a memory; and
at least one processor coupled to the memory, wherein the at least one processor is configured to:
receive an indication of a configuration of a search space (SS) and a set of one or more candidate downlink reference signals (DL-RSs) associated with a plurality of configured grant (CG) small data transmission (SDT) (CG-SDT) resources, the plurality of CG-SDT resources corresponding to an uplink (UL) data transmission;
measure a reference signal received power (RSRP) of each respective candidate DL-RS of the set of one or more candidate DL-RSs associated with the plurality of CG-SDT resources;
transmit, based on the measurement of the RSRP of each respective candidate DL- RS of the set of one or more candidate DL-RSs, the UL data transmission over a CG-SDT occasion of the plurality of CG-SDT resources; and
monitor the SS for a response to the UL data transmission.
