Who we are

The Workforce Grants staff operate out of Grants House, across 5th street from the Wells Building. The heart of the Grants House staff is to serve students, address barriers to education, and provide opportunities that people wouldn't otherwise have. We are here to help you along the way to pursuing your education.
