Regional Work Ready Grant Approved
Thursday, 20 January 2011

January 20--  Nine counties in southeast Georgia will share a state grant to make their communities "work ready."

David Yarbrough with Southeastern Tech's Economic Development Center reports the $350,000 grant will be used to support the program in Toombs, Montgomery, Treutlen, Tattnall, Emanuel, Candler, Evans, Jenkins and Johnson counties.

Yarbrough told the Toombs County Devlopment Authority Thursday Lisa Adams of Vidalia has been hired to oversee administration of the grant in the region.

Toombs County is still trying to achieve work ready status and needs more people from the private sector and and the GED program to meet its goal.

Work ready status makes the county more competitive in attracting new industry and jobs.
