The goal of awarding the Aerospace Engine Manufacturing Performance Grant Program (AEMPG) is to incentivize an aerospace engine manufacturer to locate in the Commonwealth. This tailored performance-based grant is available to a qualified aerospace engine manufacturer that meets or exceeds requirements specified in the governing statute. The program is made up of five distinct grants.

The incentive is paid after an approved performance agreement between the Commonwealth and company has been signed, and performance milestones have been achieved. The performance period is unique to each project and specified in the performance agreement; milestones reflect latest information received from company in the specified fiscal year.
