States and the Federal Government Team Up on Job Training has an interesting new piece on how states are promoting job training as part of their economic recovery efforts.
Instead of sending discouraged workers out to pound the pavement, states are using existing federal and state resources, boosted by $4 billion in stimulus funds, to help prepare workers for the kind of jobs expected to open up when the economy improves.
In addition to stimulus money, the federal Departments of Labor and Education have joined together to promote education grants for the unemployed through a new website called and provided an online resource for all state "one stop" employment shops for training, unemployment benefits and assistance with accessing the new education grants. Policies to support job training.
