July 19, 2021

The AIM Higher Consortium is a new, wide-ranging program funded by the Department of Defense to strengthen the defense supply chain in the Greater Pittsburgh region of Southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia. AIM Higher is led by Catalyst Connection with over 30 academic, economic development, technology institute, and manufacturing partners from around the region, New Century Careers among them.

A website, www.AimHigherConsortium.org, was launched to inform the public about the program, share defense industry resources, and highlight grants and training opportunities to help participating companies offset project costs.

The program offers support to small and medium-sized manufacturers in the defense industry seeking to expand business and operational capabilities, to strengthen the supply chain, and to create and retain jobs in defense manufacturing sectors.
