Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana was awarded a new grant to help get more people trained up to fill labor shortages in high demand jobs across Indiana.

The grant from Ascendium Education Group will provide access to more training for low-income rural residents looking to advance their careers and fill high demand jobs.

“It's a $2 million grant so we'll be supporting individuals in Wayne and Shelby Counties,” said Kent Kramer, Goodwill of Central and Southern Indiana President and CEO.

They're looking to fill a need in many of these fields.
