(This amendment provides $4.8 million from the general fund in the second year for the New Economy Workforce Credentials Grant Program. Demand for FY 2023 is estimated to exceed available funding of $13.5 million per year. Increasing the funding level by $4.8 million to a total of $18.3 million per year will ensure that there is sufficient funding for workers seeking reskill or upskill for high-demand jobs.)
