AUSTIN ⎯ The City of San Angelo Development Corporation (COSADC) and Workforce Solutions Concho Valley (Concho Valley) have partnered with Howard College to train and increase the number of workers in the residential construction industry. The training is made possible using a $100,000 High-Demand Job Training grant from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) which is leveraged with funds of $167,769 from COSADC. The grant will benefit workers in the Concho Valley area.

“Texas is fortunate to have COSADC, Concho Valley and Howard College collaborating to provide workforce training with the assistance of this High-Demand Job Training grant," said TWC Commissioner Representing Labor Julian Alvarez. “This partnership reflects the state’s ongoing commitment to employee development and helping Texas workers increase their skill sets, which leads to successful and rewarding careers.”

This TWC grant is part of a $1 million statewide effort to support collaborations between Workforce Solutions partners and economic development entities to create occupational job training programs that will improve the skill sets of individuals for jobs in high-demand occupations in Texas communities.

Through the High Demand Job Training Program, local workforce development boards can apply for funds from TWC to be matched by local economic development corporations, while funds are available. For more on this training program, businesses are encouraged to contact their local Workforce Solutions office or visit the High Demand Job Training Program webpage.
