Funding For Customized Training At Missouri Businesses Announced

Several Springfield companies will receive funding for customized training through the Department of Economic Development’s program, Missouri One Start.

Governor Mike Parson announced the $7.8 million in funding for 226 projects in Missouri on Wednesday.

The program provides eligible companies with resources to train or enhance the skills of their employees based on specific workforce needs, according to the governor’s office.  It’s one of the workforce development initiatives included in Senate Bill 68, which was signed into law in July. 

Companies in other southwest Missouri cities received funding, including Carthage, Galena, Greenfield, Joplin, Lebanon, Monett and Verona.
