ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A new workforce development grant was announced Thursday for the Multi-Craft Apprenticeship Preparation Program (MAPP) in Monroe County.

The $400,000 funding aims to fuel workforce development in historically underserved populations in the Rochester area.

MAPP is a non-profit organization that provides training and job-site experience, education and basic
skills required for success. The organization collaborates with local construction and trades unions to connect job seekers with employment opportunities.

“This grant will help MAPP train more job seekers that have traditionally been under-represented in these quality job opportunities — and give them the skills they can use for a sustaining job and career. Thank you to MAPP and COMIDA for your commitment to workforce development and economic equity,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello.
