TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that the state would be allocating nearly $30 million to support workforce development in Florida’s Space Coast.
The governor was joined by DEO Secretary Dane Eagle, Senior Chancellor of Education Henry Mack, and CareerSource Florida CEO Michelle Dennard at Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach Friday.
“I set a goal to make Florida the best state in the nation for workforce education by 2030 — and we are doing that by making investments that expand opportunity and meet industry needs,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Currently there are over 91,000 manufacturing and aerospace technology-related jobs on the space coast and this $30 million investment will build more opportunities for Floridians.”
