SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Overview The Investing in Manufacturing Communities Partnership (IMCP) is a new government-wide initiative that will help communities cultivate an environment for businesses to create well-paying manufacturing jobs in regions across the country and thereby accelerate the resurgence of manufacturing. The IMCP is designed to reward communities that demonstrate best practices in attracting and expanding manufacturing by bringing together key local stakeholders and using long-term planning that integrates targeted investments across a community’s industrial ecosystem to create broad-based prosperity. Research has shown that vibrant ecosystems may create a virtuous cycle of development for a key technology or supply chain through integrated investments and relationships among the following elements: • Workforce and training; • Supplier network; • Research and innovation; • Infrastructure/site development; • Trade and international investment; and • Operational improvement and capital access. Interactions within and between these elements create ‘‘public goods,’’ or assets upon which many firms can draw and that are fundamental in creating an advantage for industry but are not adequately provided by the private sector. Thus, well-designed public investment is a key part of developing a self-sustaining ecosystem that attracts private investment from new and existing manufacturers and leads to broad-based prosperity.
