County OKs seeking Workforce Development Grant
By Joseph Slacian
 
Wabash County Commissioners gave the green light for a local coalition to seek a $250,000 Workforce Development Grant.
 
The county will join forces with Huntington County to seek one of eight grants from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. 
 
The permission had to come from Commissioners because grant recipients must provide a 20 percent match, of which at least 25 percent must be in funding, according to Keith Gillenwater, President and CEO of the Economic Development Group of Wabash County.
