The Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance and Northeastern Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center, in partnership with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, received a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Economic Adjustment grant to accomplish the following objectives:
- Conduct a Market Diversification Plan for manufacturers that have 5% or more reliance with the DoD supply chain;
- Identify regional third-party consultants and experts who can assist in the implementation of recommendations contained within the Plan; and,
- Provide cost subsidies (vouchers) to accelerate manufacturer implementation recommendations contained within their Plan.
Qualifying manufacturers will have a team of highly-skilled experts analyze their market, evaluate the performance of their business and prepare a robust Plan. The Plan will include recommendations for increasing the firm's revenue from new customers, markets and products and through improved efficiencies and the adoption of new technology.
Companies may receive vouchers from $2,500 to $10,000 to cover up to 75% of consultant costs.
