Grant Description

This Federal Funding Opportunity (FFO or Announcement) announces the anticipated availability of funding for the MBDA Advanced Manufacturing Project (ЯAMPН), and solicits competitive applications for four (4) AMP awards that must be located within any of the 50 U.S. States or Puerto Rico. The AMP awards will be used to identify, screen, promote, refer minority business enterprises (MBEs) to specialized advanced manufacturing programs (e.g., the NIST Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP), and to provide technical and business development services. The technical assistance and business development services will generate increased financing and contract opportunities for MBEs and will assist MBEs in creating and retaining jobs. The AMP will also assess regulatory changes pertaining to manufacturing in domestic and global markets, economic impact and need for minority manufacturers. AMP will educate federal, state, local government and private sector entities on ways to expand resources and to use minority manufacturers.
