The DOE has made grants available to support projects that modernize small- and medium-sized manufacturing firms’ (SMMs) facilities with improved energy and material efficiency, enhanced cybersecurity, and increased use of smart and advanced manufacturing technologies to reduce waste and pollution, while increasing productivity. 

The Industrial Assessment Center Implementation Grant Program will provide up to $300,000 in funding, per entity, to help eligible SMMs implement recommendations conducted between 2018 and 2023. SMMs will provide at least 50% cost share for each project. In this first round of funding, DOE will provide up to $80,000,000. Additional rounds of funding will follow in the coming months.
