Pennsylvania’s seven (7) Industrial Resource Centers (IRC) serve as the state’s lead economic development organizations, providing support to the manufacturing community. The IRCs specialize in providing technical assistance to the manufacturing sector by assisting companies with improved bottom line strategies, productivity enhancement and waste elimination, and with topline growth by supporting strategic initiatives, new and improved products, market differentiation and workforce development strategies.
Funds will be awarded based upon submission and review of IRC proposals and work plans that demonstrate regional needs, number of manufacturers, proposed projects and projected impacts.
