WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Wichita organization wants to help offset some costs to encourage more people to move to the area for jobs.
The Wichita Community Foundation announced its partnership Monday with WSU Tech to create Wichita Promise MOVE. The program will pay housing, transportation and other expenses for students who want to move to Wichita to train for certain high-demand jobs, the Wichita Eagle reported.
The foundation plans to invest $1 million to create the Talent Ecosystem Fund. The fund will be invested in workforce issues, talent development and lifelong learning. An initial grant of $500,000 will go to WSU Tech, formerly Wichita Area Technical College.
