Workforce Investment Program Basic Information

Addressing workforce issues is essential for the home care industry. The Workforce Investment Program targets direct care workers with the goals of supporting the long term health care workforce infrastructure through retraining, redeployment, and enhancing skillsets. This program is an opportunity to provide much needed resources for the long term care workforce and supports the expansion of home care and respite care.
