UW-Parkside gets $1 million for workforce development

The University of Wisconsin – Parkside today received a $1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families. This funding will go towards UW-P’s Nonprofit Development team, to expand the focus on workforce development and economic recovery.

The grant will allow UW-P to develop a self-sustaining model to continue these programs in the future, according to Sen. Herb Kohl, D-WI, who announced the grant. In June, Kohl supported the grant application submitted by UW-P.
