Defense Industry Adjustment

Defense program impacts come in all shapes and sizes. When defense programs change or are cut, contractors and manufacturers may be faced with budget cuts, staff layoffs or factory closings. OEA supports a wide array of economic adjustment strategies by providing technical and grant assistance to areas that are impacted by defense cuts. These adjustment strategies often focus on regional job creation through business development, attraction and expansion, workforce development, and community economic diversification.
