How MMAP Works
The MMAP runs annually, utilizing a streamlined application and approval process to ease the burden on manufacturers and to create an immediate impact on your company's growth.
- Provides CAPITAL: Through necessary capital equipment purchases, you, as manufacturer, will have access to new supply chain connections, new opportunities and growth. (For what qualifies as capital, refer to the procurement page)
- Creates PARTNERSHIPS: This program aims to make connections between manufacturing and non-profit partners (such as MassMEP, Academic Institutions, MassHire, Economic Development Councils, and MassRobotics, etc.). These partnerships will provide with assistance through technical support, workforce development support, business connections, or other means of assistance, depending on the partner, to help manufacturers drive efficiencies and scale their business.
Priorities will be given to projects that:
- Align with key industries within the state, which include semiconductor, battery technologies, additive manufacturing and the defense and aerospace industries.; and
- Broaden impact across regional, social, economic, and racial boundaries.
The maximum grant award per manufacturer is $250,000.
A 1:1 minimum cost share is required by the manufacturer.
Projects will be judged by an independent panel of ecosystem experts. Final award decisions are made by the Mass Tech Collaborative after reviewing expert recommendations.
