GCCARD is super excited to hear that Gov. Whitmer has signed the FY 2022 Budget! “The budget fully funds Michigan Reconnect and Futures for Frontliners, providing direct support to help people get higher education or skills training as the state moves towards its Sixty by 30 goal of having 60% of working-age adults earn a postsecondary education or skills training by 2030. Futures for Frontliners will pay for frontline workers to attend local community college tuition-free.” GCCARD is happy to hear this much needed assistance will continue as we have employees that are currently enrolled in the program, gaining valuable skills that will help improve their quality of life!!
