Governor Hochul Announces $1 Million Grant to Per Scholas for New Tech Training Campus in Buffalo

Per Scholas is thrilled to announce that New York Governor Kathy Hochul has awarded our organization a $1 million grant through the New York State Office of Strategic Workforce Development. This funding will support the launch of a new tech training campus in Buffalo, aimed at providing high-demand technical skills and robust support services to local residents.

The grant is part of a broader initiative in which $8.7 million was awarded to 11 employer-driven, high-skilled workforce training programs across New York State, promoting innovative approaches and best practices that reduce the barriers to participation for high-need communities.These efforts aim to support nearly 1,700 trainees through collaborations between training providers and over 60 business partners in sectors such as construction, industrial manufacturing, renewable energy, and software engineering.

“New York is making sure that the State is well prepared with the talent and workforce of the future,” Governor Hochul said. “This latest round of strategic workforce development grants will continue our mission to ensure that all New Yorkers have the opportunity to gain skills needed by top employers, especially those who have been traditionally left behind.”
