Millions in funding proposed to help workforce boards meet employment challenges
25 Mar 2022
Workforce shortages and the challenges racial inequalities pose to the state economy have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Supporters of HF4134 believe Minnesota workforce development boards can create solutions tailored to local communities that will allow as strong a recovery as possible.
Rep. Ron Kresha (R-Little Falls) sponsors the bill, which calls for a onetime $20 million General Fund appropriation in fiscal year 2023 for the state’s 16 workforce boards, “for strategies identified in local Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act plans to address Minnesota's current workforce shortages.”
