Manufacturing Reboot Program

Award Announcements

Launched April 10, the Oklahoma Manufacturing Reboot Program was created to address the negative effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on Oklahoma businesses, specifically manufacturers. The program assists Oklahoma manufacturers as they retool to develop new products and/or expand current capabilities. This program utilizes up to $5 million from the Governor’s Quick Action Closing Fund to assist existing Oklahoma manufacturers as they retool to develop new products and/or expand current capabilities.

In the one week the application was available, Commerce received more than 300 applications.

To date, 24 companies have been awarded contracts through the Reboot program. Those companies are listed below*.

*This list will be updated as additional contracts are finalized.
