[DWD] Indiana Awarded Additional $2.3 Million from USDOL for Jobless Training

Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Last week the U.S. Department of Labor announced the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) will receive an additional $2.34 million in federal funds to retrain dislocated workers over the next two years. The grant is part of a $58 million effort to bolster state initiatives to retrain laid-off individuals through short-term class work or on-the-job training. Indiana’s portion represents four percent of the entire grant and is the second largest per-capita allocation of the funding divided among 30 states. 

“As federal education and training funds continue to dwindle, these dollars are a much-welcomed contribution to Indiana’s efforts to retrain and refocus the Hoosier workforce to meet the needs of employers,” said Scott B. Sanders, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. 

More information about free education and training programs for Hoosier job-seekers, as well as no-cost recruitment services for Indiana employers can be found at www.WorkOneWorks.com.
