A $6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor will assist Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande in providing borderland residents with job opportunities. 

Federal, state, and local officials presented the $6 million ceremonial check to the Border Workforce Alliance (BWA) for the Growing Regional Opportunity for the Workforce (GROW) initiative.

“This GROW grant will help us to continue our mission of providing education and employment opportunities to residents along the borderland, who often lack basic education attainment and English proficiency to access workforce training that leads to not only good jobs, but real careers," said Lorenzo Reyes, Jr., CEO of Workforce Solutions Upper Rio Grande.
