Libraries offer training and resources to help New York’s workforce attain literacy levels as well as the skills and tools needed for successful careers. Workforce development includes literacy, TASC (high school equivalency exam) preparation, citizenship information, as well as job and career information assistance. Adults are defined as persons over the age of 16 who are not enrolled in school. Libraries are encouraged to apply for a grant to carry out a project or program supporting workforce development in their community. Grants may range from $2500-5000.
