The Indiana Department of Workforce Development has awarded nearly $8 million in Skill UP Indiana! grants. The 12 recipients will use the funds to provide job skills training and education.
The recipients had to obtain a minimum private sector match of 25 percent of the funding they requested from the program. The DWD says the grants awarded in this cycle will also focus on employability skills, or soft skills, that be used across all sectors of employment.
"Skill UP grants enable regional partnerships to enhance skill attainment in the local workforce that meets employer demand for high-skilled employees both now and into the future," said DWD Commissioner Steven Braun. "The positive results from the first Skill UP grant cycle are already being realized in communities throughout Indiana and this second group of grantees will engage even more students and incumbent workers in career- and skill-development opportunities."
