Moraine Park receives $1.2 million Blueprint for Prosperity grant

On Wednesday, July 23, I was excited to welcome Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and Department of Workforce Development Secretary Reggie Newson to our Fond du Lac Campus. Lt. Governor Kleefisch came to campus to announce Moraine Park’s $1.2 million Wisconsin Fast Forward: Blueprint for Prosperity grant to train up to 126 workers for in-demand fields.

Governor Rebecca Kleefisch; and Reggie Newson, secretary of Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.
This award is part of $28 million in grants that Governor Walker recently announced as part of his Blueprint for Prosperity initiative to help Wisconsin Technical College’s train over 4,900 workers for jobs that employers need to fill.

Our training gets workers into the workforce quickly, and keeps them in the workforce, ensuring we will continue to keep moving Wisconsin forward. The Blueprint for Prosperity grant will allow Moraine Park and its partners to continue to expand its training and education efforts. We look forward to training workers for the positions that employers need to fill.
