The Ohio Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) Request for Proposal (RFP) is now available online: https://development.ohio.gov/bs/bs_mep.htm Click on 2018 Advanced Manufacturing Program RFP
The Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) is a competitive grant program that supports the adoption and extension of existing advanced manufacturing technologies by Ohio manufacturers. The Program promotes collaboration among small and medium-sized manufacturing firms, large manufacturers, Ohio’s research institutions and other eligible non-profit organizations to advance the growth and competitiveness of Ohio’s manufacturing base.
The Program was previously known as the Thomas Edison Program. It is one of the longest active tech-based economic development initiatives in the country. It was developed in 1983 to combat the decline of the manufacturing sector by promoting the development and implementation of new technologies for products and production. To that end, AMP is again being offered as a competitive grant program to encourage the adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies and processes in support of this important sector of the state’s economy.
The funding being offered will support proposals from Ohio’s universities, research institutions and other qualified Ohio non-profit organizations with demonstrated capabilities to deliver value-added advanced manufacturing assistance.
Pre-bid Conference: Monday, February 26th at 10:30 am and Tuesday, February 27th at 1:30 pm. Attendance is required. Webex access will be provided.
Proposals Due: Wednesday, March 21st by 5 pm

Construction was funded by $750,000 in grants, the bulk of which was a USDA Rural Development Grant, and local investment.
