Announcing $5000 Grants for Maker Gown Production!
Want to contribute to the PPE movement on the ground but aren’t sure where to start? GetUsPPE is launching a grant program and curriculum based cohort to kickstart DIY manufacturing groups interested in making and distributing impermeable gowns.
Our first cohort will consist of 6 maker groups across the country. Each group will receive $5000 in funding to set up the manufacturing of impermeable gowns (https://www.somethinglabs.org/impermeable-gowns). The grant program will be tied to a curriculum to share best practices from experienced gownmakers in production process, set up and sourcing materials, outreach and distribution, team management, with mentorship from Something Labs, Artisan's Asylum, OSMS and GetUsPPE.
Interested in participating? Join us on Wednesday, August 19th for an informational webinar about this program.
At this initial webinar we will introduce an overview of gown production and manufacturing considerations including materials, equipment, labor, budgeting and distribution, and will provide additional information about applying for the program.
