Job Training & Placement for Workers Impacted by COVID-19August 24, 2022
CareerConneCT will help people whose employment has been impacted by COVID-19 to get back to work.
The new initiative, which was approved by the legislature, will train thousands of state residents and help place them in high-demand industries.
CareerConneCT is funded with $70 million from the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and will have more than 19 specific job training programs available. Potential job seekers will have access to several training options including opportunities in manufacturing, information technology, health care, infrastructure and clean energy, and other high-demand sectors.

The program is also designed to focus on helping Connecticut workers underrepresented in the workforce, including Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), people with disabilities, the re-entry population, opportunity youth, veterans, immigrants, and women.
Each program will include supportive services to promote successful completion of training and connection to employment including childcare, transportation, career advising, and other forms of case management. Training and supportive services will be available at no cost to eligible participants.
House Democrats are committed to investing in our state’s economic future, and CareerConneCT is another example of how we can help people get back to work.
