Grant Helps Local Displaced Auto Workers

ROCKFORD (WIFR) - Help is on the way for displaced auto workers in the Stateline.

The University of Wisconsin Whitewater received a nearly $6 million grant to start up the Auto Adjustment Entrepreneurial Support Initiative. The initiative will help with the start up and expansion of business in the region, retrain workers and develop clean energy businesses and jobs.

The grant will help displaced workers in six counties including Winnebago, Boone and Rock Counties.
