GENEDGE will operate the Virginia Department of Defense (DoD) Rural Supply Chain Growth Program through a $500,000 single-year award from the Office of Economic Adjustment. The grant will fund the initial pilot to identify, select, and assist Virginia companies in rural regions, micropolitan and small metropolitan areas to achieve growth by expanding their DoD related business. Companies will create a foundation for sustainable growth and increase capacity for future demand. In addition, this effort will address the imbalance in growth between large and rural locations.
Utilizing our proven expertise in innovation, strategy, supply chain optimization and technology acceleration, GENEDGE will help rural companies identify opportunities based on DoD supply chain needs to drive development of new, commercially viable offerings for successful growth. This program intends to address the goals of the Commonwealth and DoD by supporting needed economic growth in our rural areas, while making the DoD supply chain more resilient.
