Workforce Credential Grant
The New Economy Workforce Credential Grant Program was developed during the 2016 General Assembly Session to create and sustain a supply of credentialed workers to fill high-demand occupations in fields which support the state’s economy while making the attainment of these credentials more affordable. This grant program provides a pay-for-performance model for funding noncredit workforce training that leads to a credential in a high demand field.
