Manufacturing Readiness Grants Available

(UNDATED) – Indiana’s manufacturing industry is critical to the state’s economy and success.

To ensure the industry retains its national leadership position and embraces advanced technologies, Conexus Indiana is partnering with the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) to launch a new Manufacturing Readiness Grant program.

In partnership with the IEDC, Conexus Indiana is now accepting applications for up to $200,000 in matching grants for companies committing to increasing their competitiveness by integrating smart technologies and processes in order to improve capacity, capability, speed and quality.

Funding may also be utilized for health care manufacturing technology, providing financial assistance to manufacturers supporting COVID-19 response efforts.

This grant was launched as part of the IEDC’s Economic Activity Stabilization and Enhancement (EASE) program aimed at supporting technology and operational advancements in the manufacturing industry.

The goal of this program is to expand critical knowledge and lower the barriers to smart manufacturing technology adoption and healthcare manufacturing equipment procurement at a time when Indiana manufacturers are faced with unprecedented challenges.
