Check out the recent success of the Transportation Sector’s Economic Development Association (EDA) Good Jobs Challenge!

Driving Prosperity, led by SOWIB in collaboration with a strategic alliance of transportation sector partners, Lane Workforce Partnership, Rogue Workforce Partnership, and transportation employers, helped 325+ Oregonians secure CDLs, boosting workforce and community strength. Special thanks to Delta Sand & Gravel Co., Lane Transit District, Aisling Truck Academy, Tyree Oil, and Jennifer Richardson for making this achievement shine!

The strategic partnership was honored as one of 32 recipients nationwide to receive funding from the EDA’s Good Jobs challenge, a transformative opportunity aimed at bolstering local economies and placing an additional 50,000 workers in quality jobs through innovative training programs.
