Training 372 Individuals in Healthcare Occupations Over the Next 4 Years


In the fall of 2016, the City of Springfield's Department of Workforce Development, in partnership with Ozarks Technical Community College, was awarded a $3 million America's Promise grant from the Department of Labor. This grant will help to address the labor shortage in the healthcare industry, right here in the Ozarks.

We are talking about jobs. We are talking about our economy. We are talking about our health care. All of this makes Springfield strong.
