Payroll Grants for AS9100 Businesses

If your businesses designs, develops, or provides an aviation product or service – including a part, component, or assembly – and that process is certified under AS9100, then you may be eligible for a payroll grant from the US government.

As we discussed last week, the Aviation Manufacturing Jobs Protection (AMJP) program opened up this morning at eight am. The program provides payroll grants for the aviation industry and the scope goes beyond manufacturing. Qualified businesses include:

  • Production Approval Holders (PC, PMA, TSOA) who’ve produced or shipped articles in the last 12 months;
  • MROs holding Part 145 certification;
  • Part and service providers who operate under an AS9100 certification.

Application details can be found in yesterday’s Federal Register. Please review this for eligibility details as well as the application process.

This is not a “first-come, first-serve” program, so you should not rush in your effort to apply. This will be a single-round solicitation process in which any application that is filed by the deadline will be treated the same as the other timely applications. So take your time, collect your data, and make sure your application is complete.

The application period will be open for four weeks.  All applications are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, July 13. Please don’t wait until the last minute to file!

ASA members and ASACB clients should reach out to the Aviation Suppliers Association for more details.
