On Wednesday, April 12, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin will stop at Chippewa Valley Technical College on her Delivering for Wisconsin Tour to highlight $4.99 million to expand access to education and training for good-paying jobs in health care and address the health care workforce shortage that is impacting rural Wisconsin.
With Senator Baldwin’s support, Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) will receive more than $4.99 million from a Department of Labor Strengthening Community Colleges Training Grant. The federal investment will support a regional effort designed to recruit, train, and prepare critical healthcare professionals across rural western Wisconsin. CVTC’s partners include Mid-State Technical College, Western Technical College, and Northwood Technical College, who will also benefit from the federal funding.
