Industry Partnership convening grants of $97,819 awarded throughout Wisconsin

Five Wisconsin Industry Partnership convening grants of $97,819 were awarded to promote alignment of energy industry needs for skilled workers. The grants were given to five regional workforce development boards:

  • Northwest Wisconsin Workforce Investment Board - $25,000;
  • West Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board - $25,000;
  • Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board (in collaboration with the Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington Counties and the Southeast Tri-County Workforce Boards) - $25,000;
  • North Central Wisconsin Workforce Investment Board - $13,000; and
  • Western Wisconsin Workforce Development Board - $9,819.

The workforce investment boards will use the funding to seek new opportunities for Wisconsin workers to take advantage of clean energy training through the $6 million Wisconsin Sector Alliance for the Green Economy (SAGE) grant funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The regional workforce boards will collaborate with energy industry leaders, technical colleges and others to find innovative ways to get more workers trained through this program.
