State Manufacturing Leadership

Federal Agency


Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains (MESC)


To support States in accelerating the deployment of smart manufacturing and high-performance computing technologies across the small- and medium-sized manufacturing firm (SMM) base.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

This program provides financial assistance in support of State programs to (1) provide assistance to SMMs to implement smart manufacturing technologies and practices and (2) facilitate access to high performance computing (HPC) resources for SMMs.

Decarbonization Considerations

Smart manufacturing technologies identify opportunities for optimizing energy management, energy productivity, and energy efficiency. Employing these technologies allows SMMs to monitor energy use of the facility and equipment, use predictive modeling to test out alternative processes, and make improvements that increase performance and productivity—all while creating energy savings.
