Diminishing federal funding for workforce development impairing Kentucky's labor force goals

Diminishing federal funding for workforce development impairing Kentucky's labor force goals

According to a new report from KentuckianaWorks, after adjusting for inflation, overall workforce spending in Kentucky decreased by 6.8% between 2013 and 2017 from $1.1 billion dollars to $1.04 billion dollars, a decline of $77 million dollars. Much of this drop is a result of federal disinvestment in workforce spending.
