Governor John Lynch today announced that four companies received Job Training Fund grants in the month of June. The state grants totaled nearly $40,000 with the four companies providing matching funds. In all, 236 workers will receive training through these grants.
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 nearly 14,000 New Hampshire workers.
"Having a skilled workforce is a critical part of the successful economic strategy that has made New Hampshire a national leader. The success of the 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: Stahlman Group, Inc. of Concord; NH Ball Bearings Astro Division of Laconia; CHI Engineering Services, Inc. of Portsmouth; and Leading Edge Design Group, Inc. of Enfield.
