REBHCGov. Charlie Baker on Thursday announced the release of $1.5 million in grant money for advanced manufacturing training, geared toward people who are unemployed or underemployed.

The money includes a $135,000 grant for the Tech Foundry in Springfield and $109,000 for the Regional Employment Board of Hampden County.

“These grants will create additional opportunities for training and growth, and will help connect residents to good-paying jobs, while meeting the increasing demand for a skilled manufacturing workforce,” Baker said in a statement.


USHUDDisaster recovery is not just about toughening infrastructure and repairing buildings, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development — it is also about jobs.

That principle was put into effect by HUD’s $17 million disaster mitigation grant awarded to Springfield last week. In addition to hydropower development and home rehabilitations, the funding — part of HUD’s $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition — will provide $300,000 over the next two years to Tech Foundry, the downtown nonprofit that trains local residents for in-demand IT jobs at local companies.



Tech Foundry has also initiated rolling recruitment. If you know someone who would be interested in being a part of our next class encourage them to fill out an application, which can be found on our website under Apply Now.
