Industrial Manufacturers Can Apply for Money!
Charlie Baker and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts want to help pay for your marketing consulting, or other consultative project.
The Massachusetts State Legislature has again appropriated $250,000 to the Smaller Business Association of New England (SBANE) for the expressed purpose of providing high-powered private consulting expertise to small and medium-sized Massachusetts-based manufacturers undergoing a business transition.
SBANE is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 program. To be eligible, companies must be manufacturing companies based in Massachusetts and must meet the criteria used by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to define a manufacturing corporation. That information is available by clicking here.
This is a competitive, one-time, matching grant program, which requires the eligible candidate company to pledge a dollar for dollar cash match. In-depth information about the program is available by clicking here.
Interested companies will be asked to fill out a one-page application and submit that along with a detailed statement and a consultant proposal.
- Applications must be received by August 17, 2015
- Projects will need to be completed no later than June 1, 2016
- The applications will be vetted by a committee of eight and all information will be kept strictly confidential
