Expand Economic Workforce Development Grant Program with ARPA Criteria

The City of Tucson will use ARPA funds to recruit and retain the local workforce and expand local employment opportunities. Among the programs include partnering with local education institutions to provide training, connecting residents to local jobs, hiring career counselors and coaches, and helping local businesses re-hire talent. A top priority is expanding the number of local direct care employees through incentives, support services, and retention bonuses.
