PROVIDENCE – The city is now accepting applications for a pair of American Rescue Plan Act funding programs designed to support workforce development and neighborhood organizations. 

The first program, the Workforce Development Funding Program, makes financial resources available to workforce development entities, community nonprofits and associations that provide workforce development programs and have experienced economic hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
