The CT Employment & Training Commission and the CT Office for Workforce Competitiveness were successful in their application to HHS for $150,000 to support the CT Workforce Investment Strategies in Health Care (WISH) Planning Grant. The funds will be used to produce a statewide health care workforce plan, coordinate disparate planning efforts, strengthen regional workforce planning efforts, and improve data collection and data sharing capacity about licensed health care professionals across the state. The planning grant puts CT in a position to apply for subsequent federal grants to expand the state’s workforce over the next decade. State partnership members have committed over $100,000 in matching funds for the project.
