NIST MEP Receives Increase in Federal Funding
March 23, 2018
Today, the House and Senate passed a massive FY18 Omnibus Appropriations package (HR 1625) funding the federal government through September 30th averting another government shutdown and the need for another Continuing Resolution. That bill included $140M for MEP. That’s a 7.5% increase and the first increase the program has seen since 2011. As the official representative of the MEP National Network in the state of Florida, FloridaMakes can bring these federal funds to Florida for manufacturers through a 1:1 state funding match up to $3.5M.
