Date Published: 7/9/2015
A total of $2 million in federal funds is being made available for scholarships to help train unemployed and underemployed residents to gain education and skills that will prepare them for high-demand, higher-wages occupations, Mayor Greg Fischer announced Thursday.
The money is being released by KentuckianaWorks, the agency that administers federally funded job programs in Jefferson and six nearby counties — Bullitt, Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble. The funds were provided under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014.
