    America Works: Investing Federal Funding in Community Workforce Development

    For county leaders in the process of rebuilding and retraining local workforces impacted by COVID-19, the American Rescue Plan’s Recovery Fund provides a key funding source. Other federal programs and provisions in ARPA, however, can be combined with the Recovery Fund to increase the impact of these investments. Learn about these various funding streams and how fellow county leaders are braiding them together to invest in connecting youth to jobs, retraining older workers, partnering with colleges, providing wraparound services through nonprofits and other key aspects of workforce development.
