    Since 2007, the Ohio Workforce Coalition has been bringing together leaders from education and training institutions, economic and workforce development organizations, business and industry, labor, and human service providers. The Coalition promotes public policies that build the skills of adult workers, meet employer skill needs, and strengthen the workforce system to ensure opportunity and prosperity for Ohio families.

Funding Opportunity?

The following information was taken directly from the website of the Forum on Democracy and Trade.

New Program. ARRA includes a new grant-based program: Trade Adjustment Assistance for Communities. This program allows a community to apply for designation as a community affected by trade. Communities are eligible to apply for grants if the Secretary of Labor certifies a group of workers in the community as eligible for TAA for Workers benefits and the Secretary of Commerce has certified a firm in the community as eligible for TAA for Firms benefits. Groups of agricultural producers in a community that has been certified to receive benefits under the TAA for Farmers and Fishermen program may also apply.

House Report 111-016 clarifies that TAA for Communities can provide technical assistance to a community to diversify and strengthen its economy; identify impediments to economic development that result from the impact of trade; and develop a community strategic plan to address economic adjustment and workforce dislocation.
