Commerce’s Workforce Development Office Announces Sector Partnership Grants

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce’s Office of Workforce Development (OOWD) is pleased to announce the availability of Sector Partnership Grants to support businesses and industry partners in creating effective and sustainable sector partnerships.
