NADO Supports Made in America Manufacturing Act

Posted on: January 25th, 2013 by NADO Admin

NADO is proud to support the Made in American Manufacturing Act, recently introduced by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). This legislation would create a public-private partnership between the federal government, states, regions, the private sector, higher education, communities, and other critical stakeholders in implementing comprehensive Manufacturing Enhancement Strategies.  States and regional partnerships would be eligible for grants to create and implement a comprehensive manufacturing plan.  NADO members would likely be eligible for these grants, which could total up to $20 million per award.  These funds, in addition to the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy grants, could be used to formulate policies that bring manufacturing jobs back to rural and economically distressed communities.  For more information on Sen. Gillibrand’s legislation, click here.
