Workforce Development Grant

In August 2015 Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill established a local workforce development council to combat local workforce shortage concerns.  Since then, the workforce development council has worked together to define the current labor shortage, identify workforce barriers, explore opportunities and ultimately suggest solutions.  Council membership includes a cross-section of about 30 government, tribal quasi-government and private industry stakeholders.  This council was developed in partnership with Fort Pierre Mayor Gloria Hanson and the City of Fort Pierre.
