$1 Million Competition to Help Makerspaces Train the Workforce of Tomorrow

SBA’s MaTCH Pilot Competition

The Small Business Administration (SBA) challenges individual organizations or teams to use existing makerspaces to create or expand skills training programs, including industry or trade certification when feasible, with a goal to immediately place all program graduates in positions with previously-identified employers.  SBA believes that existing makerspaces are uniquely positioned to help increase workforce development.

Awards include:
up to $200,000 for capacity building of existing programs
up to $100,000 to grow programs with a proven history of training or workforce development
up to $25,000 to see small workforce development programs

The deadline is July 8th. Learn more.
