KnowledgeWave is Experienced with ARPA
KnowledgeWave is experienced and has worked with many states, cities, towns, and counties, that are leveraging ARPA, the American Rescue Plan Act funds that are used for digital literacy improvements.
Are cities, towns, and counties able to use ARPA funds for training?
Yes. Policymakers can leverage ARPA funds to address skills training needed for their staff and can also use the funds to boost workforce development programs that can increase workers’ skills. In fact, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, nearly half of all the States have allocated funds for development programs to bolster worker skills.
The cloud and how you can provide training that aligns with ARPA requirements.
KnowledgeWave provides a low-cost, high ROI training service to cities, towns, and state governments. Prior to ARPA funding, many cities and towns were already making a move to cloud solutions like Microsoft 365. However, with COVID-19 the move to the cloud expedited the migration timeline for many municipalities and state governments. There was an imperative need to establish ways that employees could work remotely, effectively, and without loss of productivity.
Moving to the cloud provides benefits such as cost savings and modernizing work processes and improved communications. While improved collaboration was a benefit, during the peak of COVD-19 the primary goal was to keep systems and government running. Zoom and Microsoft Teams helped many municipalities and government agencies keep in touch and communicate. However, many municipalities were not leveraging the Microsoft 365 tools available to them to collaborate and build efficiencies that would modernize their workflows in ways that would continue to provide ROI.
