The Workforce Investment Board received a $3.2 million grant to help workers impacted by the fires find in-demand occupations, across all industries. In support of the recovery effort, they also voted to prioritize their existing funding to support individuals who want to enter the Building and Trades industry. All these funds are available through Job Link, and require individuals to meet certain criteria.
