TrANS is a cost-effective program that helps to fulfill entry-level laborer positions for construction contractors. It is a collaborative effort combining the strengths of industry and labor, community-based organizations, government and the contractors of Wisconsin.
This public-private model for collaboration successfully prepares Wisconsin’s untapped workforce with the skills needed to contribute to the transportation construction industry as laborers and apprentices. This untapped workforce that TrANS prepares to enter the construction industry involves those who have been underrepresented historically in the industry, including, but not limited to, women and minorities.
The TrANS program offers contractors a $5.00 per hour reimbursement hiring incentive to promote the utilization/hiring of TrANS Graduates. This hourly reimbursement is offered for each TrANS Graduate up to 2,000 hours. That’s $10,000 per TrANS Graduate in reimbursements.
