White House Announces $40 Billion ARPA Investment in Our Workforce

Earlier this month, the White House Summit on the American Rescue Plan and the Workforce announced $40 Billion in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to  expand and strengthen our workforce, providing underserved Americans, and those with severe barriers to employment, with career pathways for securing good-paying jobs.

Decades of operating One-Stop Career/American Job Centers and TANF Employment Programs has equipped KRA with the experience and expertise required to support programs related to the three major areas of ARPA investment addressed during the Summit:

Building a Diverse and Skilled Infrastructure Workforce…with a special focus on Pre-Apprenticeship Programs.

Strengthening Our Care and Public Health Workforce…pathways for nursing aides leads to better outcomes for patients and workers.

  • Collaborating with approved Training Providers, i.e. Anne Arundel County Community College, Caroline Center, It Works Learning Center, MedCerts, New Destiny Health Career Center, et al, KRA supports customers to achieve CNA and/or GNA and CMAA credentials for entry into sustainable healthcare careers.

Expanding Access to the Workforce for Underserved Populations…including ex-offenders.

 KRA is eager to support our current and future workforce-services clients in developing and operating innovative, exceptional, and trusted programs gained through ARPA-investment funding.
