Statewide Industrial Site Readiness:
Preparing Industrial Sites Throughout Rhode Island for the Future
To activate industrial sites across Rhode Island to create jobs, attract private investment from companies, generate tax revenue and provide economic benefits for the people of Rhode Island.
To create an inventory of pre-permitted properties throughout the State that can successfully support industrial development.
Based on the Quonset Business Park’s successful “Site Readiness” program, the Rhode Island READY initiative (“RI Ready”) will prepare industrial sites across the state. Managed by the Quonset Development Corporation (“QDC”), RI Ready will invest $40.0 million in bond funding approved by voters in 2021 to provide the services necessary to create a statewide inventory of pre-permitted properties that can support economic development.
