ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – About $7 million has been awarded to 42 organizations across New York State as part of the Workforce Development Initiative. Four organizations are in the Southern Tier.

“We need to deal with the harsh reality that the pandemic left too many New Yorkers suddenly out of work and searching for new skills to reinvent themselves and relaunch their careers,” said Governor Kathy Hochul. “These workforce awards will provide critical skills training, connect New Yorkers with the high-demand and good-paying jobs of the future, and create harmony between education, business, and public investment that will accelerate our state’s economic recovery.”

The awards were part of the second round of funding. The funding and incentives are provided in this round of awards by the Department of Labor, SUNY and CUNY.
