Reshoring Initiative to Help Mississippi ReshoreThe Reshoring Initiative is a partner with Mississippi State University in a $1.9 million award from the Make it in America Challenge, a $20.5 million federal fund to promote reshoring, job creation, and training. We will be speaking, consulting and training on reshoring and skilled workforce development. The MSU grant will be used to:
- Link small manufacturers into the supply chains of larger manufacturers.
- Engage more than 100 advanced manufacturers to prioritize reshoring and other related supply chain opportunities.
- Promote private and foreign investment, job creation and retention.
- With cooperating advanced manufacturers, establish an internship program that will fund 276 internships with a targeted 85 percent placement rate.
