May 21, 2021
SBAM was instrumental in supporting the development, passage and funding of this important initiative to expand the capabilities of our workforce.
The Michigan Reconnect program, which provides a tuition-free path to an associate degree or a skills certificate, has now put more than 70,000 Michiganders on a path to fill the state’s most in-demand, high-wage careers – exceeding the state’s goal of 60,000 by Memorial Day.
This program has and will continue to be instrumental in developing and reskilling Michigan’s workforce for the future and supplying Michigan businesses with the talent they need.

- Be at least 25 years old when you apply
