Rhode Island Manufacturing Initiative


Governor Raimondo recently announced a new manufacturing initiative — a package of workforce training and economic development programs which aim to rebuild Rhode Island’s manufacturing industry for the 21st Century and create opportunity for Rhode Island families.

The Rhode Island Manufacturing Initiative includes economic development incentives to encourage manufacturers to purchase new equipment, launch new product lines and hire new workers.

Additionally, it expands successful training initiatives, including the Real Jobs RI program which is helping Electric Boat, among other companies, train hundreds of Rhode Islanders to fill maritime manufacturing jobs at Quonset. It also calls for the formation of a Manufacturing Advisory Council.
