Deadline nears to apply for job-training grants


The deadline is fast approaching for employers or workers in Baker, Union and Wallowa counties to apply for job training grants available through the Training Employment Consortium.

Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, Nov. 25, to be eligible for a share of $54,000 in matching grants for employers in the three counties to train their existing workers to improve skills or advance to higher-paying positions, or for matching scholarships available directly to workers wanting to get training to advance to a higher-paying occupation or position.

The funding allocates 75 percent for employers to send employees for training, and 25 percent, $13,500, is earmarked for worker scholarships.

For more information or to apply, call Teri Simonis at 541-963-7942.
