$1.5M program will help prepare City of Racine residents for

public, private construction job opportunities


Last week, Racine Mayor Cory Mason and Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Secretary Ray Allen were joined by other local and state officials to announce Racine Works, a new workforce training program to help prepare City of Racine residents for public and private sector construction job opportunities tied to the influx of development throughout the Racine community.


"Our region will see more jobs tied to public and private development coming to the area than ever before," said Racine Mayor Cory Mason. "It is our responsibility, and my personal commitment, to do everything we can to make sure Racine residents are well-positioned to get those jobs ."


The program is funded by $500K allocated by the City of Racine, a $100K grant from the Gateway Foundation, and a $400K Wisconsin Fast Forward grant from DWD. Additionally, UMOS has committed to $500K in wage subsidies to Racine Works through its transitional jobs program.
