The competition is an Administration-wide initiative coordinated by the U.S. Commerce Department that rewards communities that demonstrate best practices in attracting and expanding manufacturing by bringing together key local stakeholders and using long-term planning that integrates targeted public and private investments. The initiative is designed to accelerate the resurgence of manufacturing in communities nationwide. The IMCP designation elevates communities in consideration for $1.3 billion in federal dollars and assistance from 10 federal departments and agencies. In addition, each designated community will receive a federal liaison and branding and promotion as a designated Manufacturing Community to help attract additional private investment and partnerships.
