Executive Committee approves two funding requests
CHEYENNE – The Executive Committee of the Wyoming Workforce Development Council approved two funding requests during its virtual meeting on January 31.
The first funding request approved came from the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services for $45,000 to contract with Northern Illinois University Center for Governmental Studies to conduct an evaluation of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Title I programs. Federal law requires that these evaluations be conducted.
The second funding request approved is a $4,000 sponsorship of the Wyoming Future Business Leaders of America’s 2023 State Leadership Conference. This is the Council’s first approval using the Workforce System Support Grant application process, which was finalized in November 2022. Grant applications are available on the Council’s website: wyowdc.wyo.gov.
The next meeting of the Workforce Development Council will take place February 22-23 in Cheyenne.
