Matzie: Nearly $200,000 awarded to support veteran employment
AMBRIDGE, March 9 – Beaver County veterans will benefit from new job training thanks to nearly $200,000 in state funding, state Rep. Rob Matzie announced today.
Matzie, D-Beaver/Allegheny, said the grant to NuPaths LLC – awarded through the state Department of Labor and Industry – will fund practical training to help veterans transition to civilian IT jobs.
“Military members transitioning to the civilian workforce have strong skills to offer, and our workforce needs talented workers more than ever as we build back from the pandemic,” Matzie said. “Securing this grant will allow NuPaths to train 24 veterans in Beaver County and surrounding areas for network technician and IT security analyst jobs.
“That’s a win-win because it helps strengthen our economy while giving those who served a promising path to a productive civilian life.”
Funding for the grant comes from Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act Industry Partnership and Reemployment funds.
