One Week Left: Manufacturing Community Grant Applications Due to OLDCC July 19

July 12, 2022

The DOD Office of Local Defense Community Cooperation is still accepting applications for the Defense Manufacturing Community Support Program through July 19 at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

The competitive grant program supports long-term community investments to strengthen national security innovation and expand the capabilities of the local defense industrial ecosystem, as ADC has reported.

“ADC members, with the capabilities of their many partners in academia and industry, are strongly encouraged to consider this program as an enabler for organic efforts to deliver innovation at the speed of relevancy for the Department of Defense,” OLDCC Director Patrick O’Brien said after a briefing to ADC leaders earlier this year.

Applications can be submitted through the grants.gov website. OLDCC will award up to $30 million through the program before the end of September.
