Allegheny County Democratic Delegation: $155,000 secured to expand building and construction apprenticeships for women, diverse job seekers

(Aug 17, 2023)

“There is a constant demand for skilled labor, which is only increasing as the infrastructure bill creates new projects,” said Dan Deasy, D-Allegheny. “We need a robust workforce to meet the demand, yet a large percentage of available talent never gets tapped because many women and diverse job seekers don’t have access to the apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs that are the prime gateway to these trades. Securing this new funding for Steamfitters Local 449 to expand these programs is a great step in the right direction.” Read more

$115K awarded to help Allegheny County veterans in need

(Jul 14, 2023)

PITTSBURGH, July 14 – Pittsburgh area veterans will benefit from new supports and services thanks to $115,000 in funding to three area organizations providing housing, jobs and other critical assistance, members of the Allegheny County Democratic Delegation to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives announced today. The funding from the Veterans’ Trust Fund includes $40,000 to Veterans Place of Washington Boulevard for support services to homeless veterans, $40,000 to Pittsburgh Hires Veterans for employment services, and $35,000 to Operation Troop Appreciation for financial assistance. “Life is not always easy for those returning home from service. Veterans may struggle with post-traumatic stress and face other obstacles that make it hard to reconnect with their community, find work and afford basic life services,” said Delegation Chair state Rep. Nick Pisciottano, D-Allegheny. “Today’s funding will help Operation Troop Appreciation do what they do so well – provide critical connections and financial assistance to fellow veterans needing this support. ” “After serving our nation, no veteran should have to feel the anxiety and indignities that go with not having a place to call home,” said state Rep.
