GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Wisconsin Employment and Transportation Assistance Program (WETAP) announced on Monday that it has awarded $1,748,581 to 11 non-profit organizations providing employment transportation services to low-income workers in 51 counties throughout the state.
Secretary-designee Craig Thompson said, “Lack of transportation can be an enormous barrier to people looking for work.”
Thompson continues, “This program helps to connect people to jobs – especially in counties without public transportation.”
WETAP combines state funds from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Department of Workforce Development, and federal funds, into one program to help transportation-provider groups in all parts of the state provide transportation to low-income workers.
