What is the Illinois Defense Industry Adjustment (DIA) Program? 

The Illinois Defense Industry Adjustment Program supports the state’s defense and manufacturing industries by delivering resources and providing new insights that help companies and communities grow, diversify, and become more resilient.

With its active DoD installations and diverse industrial base, Illinois has strong links to the military and the companies and people that support it. What Illinois lacks is a data-driven approach to quantifying the breadth of its defense sector – as well as its potential vulnerability – amid changing defense spending landscape.
