Pennsylvania's Next Generation Industry Partnerships
Pennsylvania is leading the way in workforce, education, economic development and community collaboration.
Through the Next Generation Industry Partnerships (Next Gen IPs), businesses are partnering to build stronger, more competitive industries through training, networking, recruitment and collaboration to raise career and industry awareness.
Next Gen IPs help businesses with the following priorities:
- Identifying their workforce, education & training, and economic development needs
- Coordinating regional support teams
- Identifying public and community resources
- Identifying opportunities for collaboration
In 2018, Governor Wolf launched the PAsmart initiative, a new strategic approach and investment to expand education, training, and workforce development.
On December 3, 2019, $40 million in PAsmart grants was announced, $4.6 million of which will be for Next Gen IPs.
