INDIANAPOLIS — The Governor’s Workforce Cabinet today announced the award of almost $1 million in grant money to 14 grantees.

Among those 14 grantees, a Planning Grant was awarded to the Community Workforce Partnership of Steuben and Noble Counties: for $10,000.

The goal is for partners to work together to create a sustainable system for the delivery of local, state, and national career information, as well as the educational attainment levels required for those careers.

The system should provide students and adults with opportunities to participate in experiential learning and training in order to make well-informed decisions about their futures.

“The focus of the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet is aligning the systems of workforce and education-related programs in the state. The Local Career Coaching grantees are taking that mission directly to their schools and communities to ensure residents have the information they need,” said Teresa Lubbers, Cabinet chair and Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education. “We look forward to seeing the results of their hard work and collaboration, including how to scale best practices and share information with future partners.”

Grant applicants could apply for a planning grant or an implementation grant.

Applicants were required to commit a 25% local match for funding and limit administrative expenses to 5% of the total grant.
More information about the grant and its recipients is available here.
