Grant applications accepted until February 15, 2023
Applications are due February 15, for the Jeff Lawrence Innovation Fund Manufacturing Grants. These initiatives are designed to encourage collaboration between not-for-profit organizations and manufacturers in New York State.
The grants serve as a resource to help companies achieve success from early stage, proof of concept through maturity. The partnership created with the not-for-profit organization often serves as the method for technology transfer, implementation of new manufacturing processes, and the creation of enhanced products and services.
New support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration is now a part of FuzeHub’s Manufacturing Grants program. As a result, at least four awards in this round will be made for projects benefiting start-up companies. Of those, at least two awards will be focus on initiatives that exclude the purchase of equipment. Up to six awards will be made to projects that benefit eligible companies of any stage of maturity, and equipment costs are eligible under those awards.
Individual grants will not exceed $50,000. The number of awards made may vary by funding round depending on the applications received. For more information, go to FuzeHub.
