Project Profile

Team Pennsylvania
Start Date: Jul 2021 — End Date: Dec 2022

Working closely with Sparks Policy Group, CREC supported the work of the Pennsylvania Manufacturing Advisory Council. CREC helped to facilitate the council meetings and working group sessions to develop recommendations on how best to strengthen manufacturing in the Commonwealth. CREC provided supportive policy and economic research while also helping the Council members refine their recommendations. CREC helped craft them for incorporation into a “Manufacturing Playbook” that was shared with the gubernatorial candidates and the transition team in 2022.
