Addressing the Middle Skills Gap Grant Program

Addressing the Middle Skills Gap Grant Program

This latest round of Workforce Competitiveness Trust fund grants was designed to address the gap between the skills held by workers and the skilled needed by employers for jobs that require more than a high school diploma but less than the equivalent of a 4-year degree.

The 15 grant partnerships involve more than 100 businesses and benefit 850 job seekers and incumbent employees.
