What is CareerConneCT?

During the 2021 legislative session, Governor Lamont and the Connecticut General Assembly passed historic legislation investing in Connecticut’s workforce. The Office of Workforce Strategy is helping to bring their vision to life with CareerConneCT. We are awarding grants to innovative workforce development programs that help unemployed people, historically marginalized groups, and students prepare for high-demand, high-quality careers.

CareerConneCT is focused on:

Reskilling and Upskilling: Continuous learning and job training are essential.

Inclusiveness and Effectiveness: Help propel worker success while advancing social equity.

Mutual Success: This win-win program helps students, workers, and Connecticut thrive by uniting employers, workforce development boards, secondary- and post-secondary institutions, and community and economic organizations.
