Defense Industry Partnership

Defense Industry Partnership

The Defense Industry Partnership grant, provided by the RI Department of Labor and Training and awarded by the Governor’s Workforce Board is designed to help SENEDIA become a more effective steward of the workforce in the State that supports the Defense and Homeland Security agencies of our government.   

The Defense Industry Partnership (“the Partnership”) came together for the first time in 2011. This partnership  develops and fosters growth in one of Rhode Island’s most robust  industry. This partnership was established in recognition of the importance of the Defense Industry to the State of Rhode Island’s economy and in an effort to align state resources to help enhance, develop, sustain and grow the workforce in this industry sector.
