RESTORE Project Boosting Career Development
One of the successful restoration projects underway is the Mississippi Gulf Coast Work-Ready Community Credential (GCWR) training project. The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) was awarded a RESTORE Act grant from MDEQ for the development and implementation of the GCWR training. At no cost, students enroll in a basic skills training class leading to industry-specific credit courses or potential employment/internship opportunities. “Bucket 1” funding through the RESTORE Act includes provision for projects that enhance workforce development and job creation.
