AUSTIN ⎯ The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has awarded Workforce Solutions Golden Crescent and local partners a $150,000 High Demand Job Training (HDJT) grant to prepare area workers for long-term, high-demand careers. 

“High Demand Job Training grants are helping address the skills gap across Texas,” said TWC Chairman Bryan Daniel. “Workforce Solutions Golden Crescent and their partners are strengthening their local economy and securing the future of their workforce.”
