NGA grant to help reskill Alabama workers displaced by pandemic

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — The National Governors Association (NGA) has awarded Alabama a $100,000 Workforce Innovation Network and Workforce Innovation Fund grant to develop innovative policies for reskilling Alabamians who have been displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NGA grant will be used to support Alabama’s Skills-Based Recovery Initiative, which will provide integrated education, workforce, and human services for displaced Alabama workers, allowing them to retrain and reenter the workforce in an occupation leading to a family-sustaining wage.

“I am grateful to the National Governors Association for awarding us this $100,000 grant because it will assist our broad-based efforts to help those Alabama workers who have been economically impacted by COVID-19,” Governor Kay Ivey said.

“It’s our goal to provide displaced workers with all the resources they need to get back on track and build a better future.”
