Rochester-based American Fuel Cell LLC, in partnership with SUNY College of Technology at Alfred, has received a $75,000 grant from FuzeHub to support manufacturing throughout New York, officials announced Tuesday.
The funds will help both entities produce membrane electrode assembly, the core component of a fuel cell.
FuzeHub is a nonprofit that helps small- to midsize companies in the state’s manufacturing industry.
The other third-round grantees are Clarkson University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Weill Cornell Medicine’s Laboratory of Bioregenerative Medicine Surgery in New York City.
Those who have received the third round of grants are projected to incrementally add 37 new jobs to both existing and startup companies across the state in the next two years, officials said.
“One of the goals of the fund, and the Manufacturing Innovation Grants, is to spur economic development in the manufacturing sector, and we’re seeing that even these small investments in manufacturing projects are allowing companies to add jobs, strengthen their teams and contribute to their growth,” said Elena Garuc executive director of FuzeHub.
The next open application period closes June 30. The application is available at https://fuzehub.com/manufacturing-innovation-fund.
