Funding for Dislocated Workers

November 3rd, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Governor Wes Moore announced that the Maryland Department of Labor has secured $4 million to connect over 300 Marylanders to careers in fast-growing industries and strengthen the talent pipeline in Western Maryland.   Funding will support projects that address the challenges facing residents trying to access good paying jobs and training. The Western Maryland Consortium will use training resources to prepare dislocated workers for careers in local high-demand occupations in healthcare, information technology, and automotive services. A second project in Anne Arundel and Montgomery counties will address employment and training for returning citizens released from Maryland state institutions.
