Earlier in August, HHS announced grant awards to support health
care workforce training. The grants will target three types of
programs: nursing workforce development programs; interdisciplinary
geriatric education and training programs; and Centers of
Excellence programs for underrepresented minority students.
Here is the press release from HHS, giving the background and goals
of the grant awards:
Here is a link to the list of all the local recipients of the
grants. Please check through your state listing to contact those
who have received their grant awards. It's a good opportunity for
your organization to engage in the public workforce or education
We will continue to post major grant awards announcements here. We
are hoping our members will engage and help local area who receive
grants on skills needed in the workplace today.
