Our goal is to increase the number of skilled workers in direct care health occupations in rural Florida.
The occupations are ones that are drastically needed – and equally under-represented – in almost all Florida safety net medical facilities that serve rural communities.
RRCC is CommHIT’s US program funded by the Department of Labor (DoL). RRCC provides 250 eligible individuals in rural Florida communities with up to $3,000 in grant-funded job training, instructional services, and support to prepare them for select direct care health occupations.
