Syracuse Will Anchor State-Proposed Regional Workforce Development Centers
Posted on January 9, 2024
CenterState CEO will play a key role in developing flagship "ON-RAMP" facility for this new state initiative
Gov. Kathy Hochul unveiled her proposal for the One Network for Advanced Manufacturing Partnerships (ON-RAMP). Through the ON-RAMP program, Empire State Development will make strategic workforce investments across the Thruway to better enable communities to recruit, train and place individuals from underrepresented communities into high tech manufacturing jobs, with a flagship location in Syracuse. The governor’s proposal builds on the work CenterState CEO's been doing to help all members of the Central New York community access the advanced manufacturing careers that exist in the region.
CenterState CEO is excited for the opportunity to lead the planning and design of the ON-RAMP hub in Syracuse. This proposal is informed, in part, by the work CenterState CEO’s been doing with NYS Empire State Development on the federal Tech Hubs program, Syracuse Surge and Syracuse Build initiatives, and the Future Ready Workforce Innovation Consortium. This is yet another exciting opportunity to work with our Upstate neighbors. By working together, we are expanding success past a singular region and establishing Upstate New York as a super region growing the advanced manufacturing industry in New York. We thank Governor Kathy Hochul for her continued partnership and vision.
