New Solicitations for Grant Applications: The Make it in America Challenge
The Make it in America Challenge will provide up to $40 million in competitive grant funding through the Employment and Training Administration, the Department of Commerce, and the Delta Regional Authority. This collaboration allows applicants to submit one application to leverage complementary federal funding sources to support the development and implementation of a regionally
driven economic development strategy that accelerates job creation by encouraging re-shoring of productive activity by U.S. firms, fostering increased Foreign Direct Investment, encouraging U.S. companies to keep or expand their businesses—and jobs— in the United States, and training local workers to meet the needs of those businesses. Federal support for the Make it in America Challenge is expected to be used to fund up to 15 projects.
