Grow Cabarrus Offers More Support to Local Manufacturers
The Cabarrus EDC announced the continuation of its economic gardening program, Grow Cabarrus, in an exciting partnership with the State of North Carolina. Eligible Cabarrus County manufacturers will receive funding to participate in Grow Cabarrus from the North Carolina Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NCMEP), a state program funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Through recent CARES Act funding, NCMEP has launched an Emergency Assistance Program to provide services that support manufacturers’ ability to respond to the coronavirus pandemic and improve their competitiveness as the marketplace adapts. The economic gardening program provides many of the tools that can support manufacturers as they maneuver through these challenging times.
