We're starting to see stories in the press about stimulus money from the ARRA arriving in local workforce development programs. How much are they getting, and what will they do with the money to help people get back to work?
Here are just a few examples:
- Fairfield County (Ohio) Job and Family Services' will receive $680,000 for workforce programs
- Brockton (Massachusetts) Workforce Investment Board is getting $2.15 million
- In Torrington, Wyoming, stimulus funds are being used for commercial drivers license training, an industry with projected job growth
- The Eastern Carolina Workforce Development Board in North Carolina will get $2.7 million to serve 1,200 to 1,500 people in the nine county region
- Georgia has launched a new Be Work Ready program with stimulus funds.
How much is your local workforce board or one-stop getting in stimulus funds?
What will you do with the money?
