PROTECT THE FRONTLINE: SUPPLY PPE
About the Manufacturing Emergency Response Team
Companies that manufacture or have the capacity to manufacture PPE are also able to apply for grants through the Manufacturing Emergency Response Team (M-ERT). The M-ERT is a coordinated response led by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that has made $10.6 million in funding available to manufacturers. The M-ERT can also provide assistance to manufacturers, including around high priority needs, regulatory compliance, and manufacturing designs and specifications. Additional grant funding may be made available.
