CLEVELAND -- A regional jobs initiative, "Towards Employment," plans to launch a sector-focused work force development program with up to $860,000 from the Fund for Our Economic Future  to fund the first year of the new program, which has been named WorkAdvance.

"Towards Employment developed a work force program that is both innovative and collaborative -- two attributes central to northeast Ohio's economic revitalization," said Brad Whitehead, Fund president, in announcing the grant. "Training and retaining talent regionally and connecting talent with employers ultimately improve the economic future of our residents and region."
