NOFA: FY2022 Locally Made Manufacturing Grant

The Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) invites the submission of proposals for the DC Local Equity, Access and Preservation Funds – Locally Made Manufacturing Grant Program (“Locally Made”). 

Purpose

The Office of the Deputy Mayor recognizes manufacturing supply chains have become more complicated due to multiple suppliers, challenging international trade and import and export regulations, and the rapid acceleration of e-commerce demands and absorption, and the exacerbation of the COVID-19 global pandemic and public health emergency. Supply chains were distressed and, in some cases, disrupted. There is increasing need to manufacture and procure consumer goods locally.

Award

DMPED will award up to $500,000.00 total in grants to be disbursed to successful applicants of the Grant. Maximum request per application is $100,000.00.

Application

The application to apply for the FY22 Neighborhood Prosperity Fund opens on Friday, February 25, 2022 and closes on Friday, March 25, 2022 at 4:00 PM EST.
