Governor John Lynch today announced that four companies were awarded Job Training Fund grants in May. The grants totaled nearly $75,000 and will be used to provide enhanced training to nearly 100 workers.
Governor Lynch made it a priority to reinstate the Job Training Fund in 2007 as part of the state's successful economic strategy. Since then, the state has issued nearly $5 million in grants to help train over 13,000 New Hampshire workers.
"Having a skilled workforce is critical to our economic success and the he Job Training Fund continues to ensure we are making smart investments in our workers and our companies," Governor Lynch said.
The four companies that received grants are Medtronic Advanced Energy of Portsmouth; Laminated Films and Packaging, also in Portsmouth; Seacoast Imported Auto of Stratham; and J&B Auto Sales in Northwood.
