Ohio receives $7,000,000 through the USDOL — Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant

The State of Ohio will share part of $138 million from USDOL for a Sector Partnership National Emergency Grant program.
The funds awarded build on “sector strategies,” industry-focused approaches to workforce and economic development that align job-training programs to meet the needs of a local or regional labor market. The funds will target long-term unemployed individuals and assist with on-the-job training; transitional jobs, pre-apprenticeships and registered apprenticeships; job search assistance; and career planning and career coaching.

he Ohio Workforce Coalition has a long history of advocating for and supporting sector partnerships that bring together employers, workers, and other key stakeholders from a selected industry sector.

Together, the partners discuss the sector’s particular characteristics, practices, and skill requirements. Partners develop and implement effective job training and placement services that address immediate skill shortages while developing workforce pipelines to ensure the future success of industry.

Congratulations Ohio!
