Manufacturing Massachusetts Grant Program: Due Oct 25th

The Massachusetts State Legislature appropriated $250,000 to SBANE for the expressed purpose of providing high-powered private consulting expertise to small and medium-sized Massachusetts-based manufacturers undergoing a business transition. SBANE is now accepting applications for the 2013-2014 program. To be eligible, companies must be manufacturing companies based in Massachusetts and must meet the criteria used by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to define a manufacturing corporation. That information is available by clicking here.

This is a competitive, one-time, matching grant program, which requires the eligible candidate company to pledge a dollar for dollar cash match. In depth information about the program is available by clicking here.

Application Process
Interested companies will be asked to fill out a one page application and submit that along with a detailed statement and a consultant proposal.

  • Applications must be received by October 25th, 2013.
  • The expected project timeline will begin in early December and be completed no later than May 1st, 2014.
  • The applications will be vetted by a committee of seven and all information will be kept strictly confidential.

Companies must hire a 3rd party consultant; current employees CANNOT be substituted for a consultant. SBANE will handle all project payments and will ask each consultant to fill out a W-9 form. Along with each invoice, consultants must submit a benchmark report. At the completion of the project, SBANE requires a final report, detailing any and all results that company will see as a direct result of the project.

Please email Sarah Henry at sarah@sbane.org sarah@sbane.org or by calling 781-890-9070 ext 227 with any questions about the program.
