Grant Funding Opportunities
Our grant partners are critical to our clients’ success. Without this support, many clients would struggle to find the resources to fund important projects that help manufacturers transform their businesses and achieve their growth objectives. Grant funding can help small to mid-sized manufacturers reinvent themselves, increase profits, create jobs, and establish a foundation for long-term business growth and productivity.
In support of New York State manufacturers, grant funding is accessible across a wide variety of funding sources to offset significant project costs. Funding and assistance are available from government (local, state, and federal), as well as a variety of private sector sources.
A significant percentage of our clients receive some form of grant assistance and a high percentage of those grant proposals are approved. It’s important to note that a majority of the secured grants are not dependent on job head count goals.
It is challenging to understand this diverse and sometimes confusing landscape. AM&T is knowledgeable of the organizations and resources available for support, and will connect you with the right people and assist throughout the process.
