Agency Name

Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge


This FFO announces the availability of funding for the Advanced Manufacturing Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge (Advanced Manufacturing Jobs Accelerator). Under this FFO, regional partnerships across the nation can compete to access complementary Federal resources to support advanced manufacturing activities in order to drive high potential industry clusters. The Advanced Manufacturing Jobs Accelerator is designed to foster job creation, increase public and private investments, and enhance economic prosperity by harnessing the economic growth and job creation potential resulting from advanced manufacturing activities within high-growth industry clusters that have been identified by regional stakeholders. This initiative is designed to leverage existing financial and technical resources from five distinct Federal agencies through awards to approximately 12 projects that will be selected through competitive multi-agency grants. The participating funding agencies anticipate providing approximately $26 million in Federal support for the Advanced Manufacturing Jobs Accelerator that will be used to fund approximately 12 new awards, each with a project period of up to three years. The funding level of each participating Federal Agency will vary, subject to the availability of their respective appropriations. The funding agencies and programs are: The U.S. Department of Commerce’s (DOC) Economic Development Administration (EDA); The DOC’s National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST’s) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP); The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO); The Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA); and, The Small Business Administration (SBA). This collaboration allows applicants to submit one application to leverage multiple complementary Federal funding sources to comprehensively promote advanced manufacturing activities and support cluster development. In addition, the National Science Foundation (NSF) is making funds available for existing Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grantees (Phase II only) that are part of or central to awarded projects.
