To keep policy makers, regional partners and the general community as a whole informed of project activities and regional manufacturing news, the OH-PA Interstate Region instituted a monthly e-newsletter in February 2013.

The e-newsletter offers regional manufacturers a forum to showcase new process, equipment, technology and production capabilities. It affords service providers and partners the opportunity to promote the positive news occurring within their organizations, and it provides grantee staff a venue to promote new programs and service offerings derived from the WIF grant. The e-newsletter is distributed to more than 1,000 readers in the Oh-Penn region with positive access/viewing metrics ranging 2-5% higher than industry average.
