NM Receiving Federal Manufacturing Grant

KRWG News – SANTA FE, N.M. (KRWG) The New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership has gotten a federal grant for nearly $342,000.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman says the grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Commerce will be used to help small- and medium-size businesses acquire advanced manufacturing capabilities.
