Congressman Don Manzullo presented the Manufacturing Alliance of the Rock River Valley, or MAARV, with a $175,000 federal grant.
That money is being matched by funds from the city, county, state and local donations, bringing the total number to $350,000.
The money will be used to hire full-time employees for MAARV and allow the organization to begin self-funding.
