In order to enroll, students must meet the following criteria:
- Students must be 18 or older
- Students can not have a college degree
- Students must be residents of Six Corners or South End neighborhoods
- Acceptance will depend upon a series of assessments measuring math, reading and writing skills.
Those interested in enrollment or additional information should contact Ana Sanchez at (413) 755-4789 or email@example.com.
The City will be awarding a total of $250,000 in CDBG-DR funding to three organizations to provide job training and workforce developmnt programs to residents of disaster impacted neighborhoods. There will be a special focus on recruiting residents of the Six Corners and South End neighborhoods, as the residents of these neighborhoods face multiple barriers to employment and both areas were heavily impacted by both the long and short term effects of the natural disasters that occured in 2011.
The City has issued the following awards for these purposes:
- Training Resources of America will receive $85,100
- Springfield Technical Community College will receive $94,449
- Window Preservation LLC in partnership with the Hampden County Sheriff's Department will receive $70,451
The City anticipates that the contracted organizations will provide training to a minimum of 100 Springfield residents.
