Dubuque jobs program to get $40K

Posted:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

US Rep. Bruce Braley announced Tuesday the East Central Intergovernmental Association will receive $40,000 for the Dubuque Works program.

The money comes as an award from the US Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration, Braley said in a media release.

The Dubuque Works program comes through the Greater Dubuque Development Corporation.

The money, Braley said, will help the Dubuque Works program increase job placement efforts for the unemployed and underemployed in the region.

"In this recession, we need to focus on creating jobs and growing our economy," Braley said in the release. "Dubuque Works is an innovative workforce development partnership that matches employers with prospective employees. This $40,000 investment will help people get back to work faster and in better jobs."
