IMEC offers Advance-funded grants to manufacturers
Speaking of Advance McHenry County funding, a program through the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center offers local manufacturers a chance to qualify for grants to overcome challenges.
The grants, which come at no cost to the applying business, offer local manufacturers technical assistance and training solutions to help them rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic, and to help them retool and innovate to protect their operations from future unforeseen disruptions.
Funding is available in four pre-determined program areas: growth, strategy, workforce and operations. You can learn more and apply for grants by visiting the application portal at www.imec.org/advancemchenry.
The program is funded through a $1.395 million Advance McHenry County grant, which you can read about more about here.
