Iowa will receive $6 million to place 1,500 dislocated residents in rapidly growing, apprenticeship-based occupations in high-demand industries, according to a news release from Iowa Workforce Development. The money will help create and expand employer-driven partnerships to provide apprenticeships and industry-recognized credentials. Iowa Workforce Development also will receive nearly $760,000 from the U.S. Labor Department to finance in-person assessments to help newly unemployed residents.
