CareerSource Central Florida was awarded $7 Million in CARES Act resources to serve Orange County residents whose employment has been impacted by COVID-19. These resources arrive at a critical time when the need in Orange County is exponentially higher than the resources through WIOA. The funding will aid in providing workforce re-entry and meaningful careers to 4,000 displaced Orange County workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re amping up our efforts both internally and externally to provide swift and impactful solutions.
While the funding is available through the end of December, CSCF will leverage the workforce system to support placement for the customers through June 2021. CSCF will identify innovative and virtual training options to quickly assess and enroll customers into service options that boost their competitiveness in the labor market.
Through our proven workforce development and business services, CSCF’s workforce solutions and strategies will include:
-Comprehensive Individualized Career Counseling Services
-Training, OJT and Internships
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress in the coming months!
