The Indiana Department of Workforce Development has received a $10.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to connect employers with dislocated Hoosier workers.
The money comes from the Quality Jobs, Equity, Strategy, and Training Disaster Recovery (QUEST) grant program which targets high-quality jobs in infrastructure, environment and climate, the care economy and other critical and growing sectors.
The Department of Workforce Development will use the grant funding to partner with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and others to develop an outreach strategy with Indiana employers to target populations disproportionately impacted by the economic inequities exacerbated by the pandemic.
For the employer population, the department will prioritize work with employer partners in identified, high-demand recovering sectors, and in emerging sectors such as renewable energy, electric vehicle technologies and semiconductor production.
