Opportunity for Local A&D Companies to Benefit from New DoD Grant Program

“Opportunity for Local A&D Companies to Benefit from New DoD Grant Program”

San Diego Chapter meeting on January 23

Propel San Diego is a grant initiative from the DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) designed to provide strategic and sustainable assistance to firms in San Diego who sell products and services to DoD.

The purpose is to develop a resilient defense supply chain that can stabilize despite changing budget, regional economic, and DoD readiness priorities and increase economic resiliency by mapping the ecosystem, leveraging existing tools to support businesses, promoting commercial diversification strategies, and increasing company to company connectivity to drive new partnerships.

As part of this project the San Diego Regional EDC conducted their largest survey report ever to learn about specific challenges and issues impacting defense companies in San Diego County. The results of that research shed light on the character of the firms operating in San Diego as well as opportunities for the region to shore up local supply chain issues and potential capture more defense spending.
