Community Development Block Grants Training

Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) have been used for years to support fire halls and community centers, as well as fund water projects and other community projects that build up South Dakota's physical infrastructure.

Purpose of the CDGB Workforce Training program: Utilize CDBG funding to provide job training for individuals who meet the low-to-moderate income requirements so tehse individuals can advance themselves in the workforce.

Goal:
 

  1. To assist cities and counties, working in conjunction with local technical institutes and other educational centers, in implementing new training programs to address the current workforce needs in their area.


As an integral component of South Dakota WINS, the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) will work to allocate nearly $1Million in federal CDBG dollars to a program to bolster workforce training in our state. This program will fund projects that provide job training for individuals who meet the low-to-moderate (LMI) income requirements.
