Davis: Three Rivers Workforce Development Board awarded nearly $140K in funding

HARRISBURG, March 5 – State Rep. Austin Davis, D-Allegheny, today announced that a $137,996 grant was awarded to the Three Rivers Workforce Development Board (Partner4Work).

Davis said the grant, awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry’s Business-Education Partnership program and funded through the federal Workforce Innovative and Opportunity Act, helps young adults develop vital workforce skills by providing them with their first work experience.

“Internships are one of many ways to prepare young adults for their future,” Davis said. “This workforce development board excels in that category. I am confident this funding will go a long way in ensuring young adults get the exposure they need to begin their journey on to a new career.”

The 2020 SLIP will operate for an eight-week period between May 1 and Aug. 28, 2020. The program will offer wages at a minimum of $10.35 an hour for young adults between ages 16 and 24.
