About

In 2016, the City of Springfield in partnership with Ozarks Technical Community College received the America’s Promise Grant for $3 million from the Department of Labor to empower unemployed, underemployed, and incumbent workers in the Ozark Region with the ability to attend school to pursue certifications and degrees in healthcare pathways. In the Ozarks, the healthcare field is experiencing a labor shortage; the America’s Promise Grant seeks to fill this gap and create a more skilled workforce in the region.
