PMA Chicago Economics Update Event

There has never been a better time to utilize government resources to grow your business as the nation looks to reshore advanced manufacturing in key sectors. Join representatives from the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity to learn about what the state is doing to support and benefit the growth of the supply chains for electric vehicles, renewables, semiconductors and more here in Illinois.

Attendees will learn about the department's Illinois Reimagining Energy and Vehicles (REV) program, including:

• How you can benefit from a  public-private consortium called Innovate Illinois, working to win more than Illinois’ fair share of federal funding for companies and projects;
• How Illinois is working to retain and grow its existing companies in these sectors, working with IMEC to help companies make a successful transition to clean energy plus hosting the state’s first EV Industry Day in April;
• How to lean into sustainability initiatives at your company supported by state programs; and
• How incentives like REV and ETIP (the employee training investment program grant) could benefit your company and any expansion plans you might have.
