Governor Ned Lamont, the Department of Economic and Community Development, and the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology announced the awards. The funds are being provided through the Additive Manufacturing Adoption Program, which is part of CCAT’s Connecticut Manufacturing Supply Chain Program, and recipients will provide a match equaling or exceeding the grant funds.
