The extra stimulus money will help 5,000 more people than last year, according to the report. The funds will go toward tuition assistance programs, job training in "high-demand fields like healthcare and technology" and the expansion of five WorkNet Chicago offices.
City Colleges of Chicago, which receives funding through state and federal grants, will not benefit from this funding source. The school system comprised of seven colleges provides vocational training and development programs as well.[Chi-Town Daily]
