CONGRESSIONAL BRIEFING OVERVIEW

Manufacturing USA institutes, with a vision of U.S. global leadership in advanced manufacturing, assist manufacturers with technology and workforce development. Federal support for these institutes creates a framework that allows industry, academia, and federal laboratories to work together to take the most promising new technologies and transform them into products to be manufactured here in America.

This past year, institutes leveraged more than $183 million in federal funds, matched by over $304 million in state and private sector investments, to conduct 475 major research and workforce development projects of high priority to broad industry sectors. The participants and direct beneficiaries of these projects are the institutes’ 1,900+ member organizations in Congressional Districts across the nation. Members of the institutes consist of 63 percent manufacturing firms, of which 70 percent are small and medium sized companies – key manufacturing supply chain participants. Recognizing the need for education and workforce development in new technologies, the institutes also equipped more than 200,000 people with advanced manufacturing knowledge and skills.
