Rural Healthcare Grant

The training must result in advancement of an individual’s skills along a career pathway into middle- and high-skilled healthcare occupations. Among the individuals eligible to receive training, those of particular interest include veterans, military spouses, transitioning service members, and underrepresented populations including women, people of color, ex-offenders, individuals with disabilities, and other populations with employment barriers that hinder movement into middle-to high-skilled healthcare occupations.

Region 4 Workforce Board along with 8 Workforce Boards across the state will implement the grant by expanding employment and training models for the healthcare industry that will help individuals gain the skills necessary to provide needed services, fill vacancies, and allow employers to find skilled workers more readily.
