DED Awards Funding For Workforce Training Programs

The Missouri Department of Economic Development says the state will award $30 million dollars through the ARPA Workforce Training Program. The program was funded through the American Rescue Plan Act and will focus on helping companies deal with workforce shortages.

The ARPA Workforce Training Grant Program was launched in August 2022. The program awarded competitive grants to wide range of applicants and will train workers for a variety of industries including child care, health care, broadband deployment, manufacturing and more. The grant is also aimed at helping those who need it most, encouraging recipients to train at risk and low income populations.

Biotech of Missouri will receive just over $2 million dollars which will be distributed to many counties in the state for training and workforce development in biotechnology and biomanufacturing.

Missouri Public Utilities Alliance will provide $1.1 million dollars for training of line workers, water, wastewater, natural gas, and broadband training in the Northwest Missouri Region.

Practical POCUS LLC has been awarded just under $3 million for many counties in the state, including the area, to provide point of care ultrasound continuing education credit for health care providers.

Northwest Missouri State has been awarded just under $990,000 for Agri systems Management for welding, manufacturing, and precision management.
