Check out our new website for Connecticut manufacturers

We’re pleased to announce another Manufacturing Innovation Fund (MIF) initiative supporting growth in Connecticut’s manufacturing sector. 

The MIF board has just launched an expanded Advancing Manufacturing Faster website. Through this easy-to-use site, Connecticut manufacturers can now link to all kinds of resources that can help them:

  • Accelerate growth, including vouchers for equipment, funds for improving energy efficiency and grants to increase exports
  • Cultivate talent, including information on pre-apprenticeships and apprenticeships as well as worker training grants
  • Facilitate innovation, including support for applied research, prototyping and precision machining
The site also includes a special section to help job seekers investigate careers, complete with links to educational programs across the state as well as inspirational videos profiling those who’ve taken different paths into the manufacturing field.
Please help us get the word out about this valuable new resource. Simply share this link to with your networks. Also, please send your  updates on events, news and resources to so we can consider adding them to the site.
Thank you for joining us in advancing manufacturing faster in Connecticut!
