Maine Defense Industry Alliance

Maine Defense Industry Alliance

Maine Defense Industry Alliance (MDIA) is a collaborative effort between government agencies, educational institutions, and industry partners to address the workforce needs of Maine’s defense industry.

Building a Sustainable Workforce for Maine's Defense Industry

The alliance aims to build a comprehensive, coordinated, and sustainable development system that will solve the Maine defense industry’s two immediate needs: acquiring skilled workers and upgrading its incumbent workforce.

The defense industry is a significant contributor to Maine’s economy, and meeting its workforce needs will require talent recruitment, direct short-term training for immediate employment, and an upskilling of the incumbent workforce. MDIA will help the state meet these demands.
