City's work force development program receives $2.5M grant

Posted online
The city of Springfield received $2.5 million for funding of the Missouri Work Assistance program from the Missouri Department of Social Services Family Support Division.

The funding, a grant from the Family Support Division's Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, will allow the Springfield Department of Workforce Development to continue to operate the Missouri Work Assistance program - formerly known as the Welfare-To-Work, Career Assistance Program. The city has operated the program since 1997, according to a city news release.

Workforce Development operates Missouri Career Center facilities in Springfield and Branson and a mobile unit that serves Bolivar, Buffalo, Marshfield and Crane.

The career centers help job seekers and businesses connect and provide individualized services, such as labor market trends for job seekers and tax credit information for businesses, according to its Web site.
