|As the Space Shuttle program moves toward its 2010 retirement, regional leaders are engaged to manage the economic impact of this change with the immediate goal of retaining this highly-skilled workforce in our region. The Space Shuttle/Constellation workforce has qualities valued by the management in any industry. This includes a high quality work ethic, process and safety disciplines, strong loyalty, pride in their work, and a culture of precision performance. |
The business community can also help this effort by being an active part in the process.

National Emergency GrantOn-The-Job Training Inquiries
Businesses from Brevard to Tampa can now take advantage of a Department of Labor National Emergency Grant awarded to Brevard Workforce. The grant, in part, underwrites salaries for businesses that hire Space Coast residents laid off as a result of the end of NASA's Shuttle program, extending to workers inside and outside of aerospace. It is designed to help businesses with most of the funding targeted at the On-The-Job-Training (OJT) program.
If you think your business may be interested in hiring a candidate through the OJT program, please complete our National Emergency Grant On-The-Job Training Inquiries form. Brevard Workforce will review the applications and contact you in the July/August 2010 timeframe.
