MassDevelopment is now accepting applications for matching grants to eligible organizations that will create innovative programs to educate students and the adults in their lives about career options in advanced manufacturing. The grants represent a significant step forward in the new AMP it up! campaign. Through the community-based programs and activities that grant recipients will develop, MassDevelopment will work with these organizations to dispel common misconceptions about today’s manufacturing and bolster the prospective employee base for these quality jobs.
Eligible applicants must be Massachusetts-based nonprofit organizations that work with students between the ages of 10 and 19. The application deadline is November 15, and grant awards will be made around December 15. MassDevelopment will also work with the recipients of the matching grants to develop and provide collateral that these programs can utilize.
