Sector Strategies in the News: Wisconsin Issues Grants

Wisconsin has issued grants in the Governor's Sector Strategies Initiative.

The grants include funding for healthcare worker training, green manufacturing, lean manufacturing and others, throughout the state. All grants have at least a 50% match from the grantees, demonstrating the ability for sector strategies to leverage additional funds.

"Industry has always had a role in work force development," Governor Doyle said. "Now industry will have a leading role in identifying the skills workers need for good jobs in strategic sectors, and the best use of our training dollars to meet those needs. This is worker training driven by demand that helps workers, employers, and communities grow."
