AMOS recently pushed through state legislation to increase funding for workforce development. Pathways to College Education (PACE) provides community college funding for people who are low income, cannot qualify for Pell grants and are interested in pursuing careers in Iowa where there's a shortage of workers (i.e. welders, machinists, tool and die makers, CNA's, etc.). PACE has passed the House and Senate and is awaiting signature from the Governor. The bill would provide $5 million for the state's community colleges.
