State awards workforce training grants for advanced manufacturing jobs to 8 Massachusetts organizations
Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito appeared at Franklin County Technical School on Tuesday, where she awarded $1.33 million to eight workforce training organizations through the Advanced Manufacturing Training Program. The program focuses on reaching veterans, groups with chronically high unemployment, and other adults historically underrepresented in the manufacturing sector, and helps people gain marketable skills. The grants were awarded by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development on behalf of the Governor's Workforce Skills Cabinet, building on $9.5 million in Workforce Skills Capital grants awarded earlier this year.
