ARPA grant to support workforce

Workers in Rock County will soon be able to train in some highly needed career areas thanks to a $1.6 million grant through the American Rescue Plan Act.  Southwest Workforce Development Board CEO Rhonda Suda says the money will be used to provide training in the areas of essential child care, industrial maintenance, and truck driving.  Suda says the program is intended to help workers re-engage in the workforce after the pandemic.
