The Reimagine Arkansas Workforce Project provides funding for qualifying individuals to complete online training at no cost in order to meet workforce needs across the state.
The U.S. Department of Education awarded a grant worth over $13 million to the Arkansas Workforce Development Board and the Arkansas Division of Workforce Services to fund the Reimagine Arkansas Workforce Project. This state-wide coordinated effort is intended to benefit Arkansans who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Project partners include: Department of Workforce Services, Shorter College, U of A Global Campus, and iDatafy LLC.
Successful completion of these training programs will help Arkansans return to or thrive in the Post-pandemic era workplace.
