Rantoul Area Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Oct. 28.
We are happy to announce that in collaboration with the Illinois Community College Board and State Representative Carol Ammons, we have launched a new program that will provide free, short-term training to underserved populations in the district.
Backed by a $1.5 million Illinois Workforce Equity Initiative grant, Parkland's new Support for Workforce Training (SWFT) Program aims to help more than 150 district residents move into high-demand careers with family-sustaining wages within a year or less.
