Biden administration grants $1 billion for economic projects | app

WASHINGTON (AP) — Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo announced Friday $1 billion in federal grants for manufacturing, clean energy, agriculture, biotechnology and other sectors that will go to 21 regional partnerships.

The winners were chosen from 529 initial applicants vying for grants as part of last year’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package. The Biden administration has repeatedly presented a vision of the economy that is more self-sufficient and driven by high-tech manufacturing and the development of renewable energy.
