What is JobTrakPA?
JobTrakPA is a new program in Pennsylvania that was created with federal dollars from the Department of Labor. The agency recently awarded the state a $20 million grant through the Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training (TAACCCT) program. The program allows displaced Pennsylvania workers to train for in-demand jobs within the state, by pairing community college course offerings directly with the needs of the community. The program has awarded grants to states across the country that demonstrated a need for job re-training and the necessary resources to provide the right kind of training to displaced workers in the community.
