Delivering a high return on investment to taxpayers

As a public-private partnership, the MEP National Network delivers a high return on investment to taxpayers. For every one dollar of federal investment in FY 2023, the MEP National Network generated $24.60 in new sales growth and $27.50 in new client investment. This translates into more than $4.3 billion in new sales. During this same time, for every $1,633 of federal investment, the Network created or retained one manufacturing job.
