Celebrate workers in Wisconsin by investing in them
5 Sep 2022
Across state government, we’re investing strategically to help workers and to strengthen our communities so they can attract the best talent. For example, at Gov. Evers’ direction, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and the Department of Workforce Development are providing more than $128 million in Workforce Innovation Grants to 27 regional projects to meet workforce needs in key sectors.
As the name suggests, these are innovative, grassroots, collaborative, practical solutions – such as helping small school districts grow their next generation of teachers, ensuring a steady supply of rural health care workers, and providing that last mile of transportation between the bus stop and a local employer.
