Southwest Virginia Workforce Development Program Awarded New Grants for Recovery and ReEntry Program

The Southwest Virginia Workforce Development Board was awarded an ETA-Community Project Grant ($750,000) and a Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities Grant – WORC ($1.5 m) to support the return of our R.O.P.E.S program.


R.O.P.E.S. will help justice-involved individuals, those currently participating in substance misuse recovery,  and those with other employment barriers to reengage in the local workforce.
