BALTIMORE- Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation Secretary Leonard Howie on Monday announced the 28 winners of the 2014 Employment Advancement Right Now Maryland Implementation Grants.

The winners were selected as the partnerships that met industry needs, and to train Marylanders in the skills employers look for.

EARN Maryland, managed by DLLR, is the first state skills training initiative that is business-led, and collaborative, officials said. They added that the program is designed to ensure that Maryland employers have the talent they need to grow while providing precise education and training to Maryland workers.
