THE FAIRFIELD COUNTY WORKFORCE CENTER IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED $2,000,000 TO HELP EXPAND OUR PROGRAMMING TO CREATE MORE ROBUST EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES.

This funding was made possible by the recently passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) and granted to our center by the Fairfield County Commissioners. Yesterday's event hosted at the Workforce Center honored the 20 projects across the county that received funding through the ARP. In addition, we were grateful to be able to give tours of our center to members of the wider community to inform them about the services we offer.

Thank you again to the Fairfield County Commissioners for this funding so that we can expand our programming to help the future workers of Fairfield County get the education and opportunities they need to thrive!
