White House Critical Needs List

Interested in Pivoting Your Operation
to Contribute to the Critical Needs of the Nation?

The White House has asked the NIST Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP)  Network to reach out to manufacturers in their state and inquire about items on the Critical Needs list (equipment, parts, supplies and capabilities) to aid the nation’s COVID-19 response. iMpact Utah has been asked to champion this effort in Utah.
