News Council President & CEO Michael Weekes and Advocates President & CEO Diane Gould appointed to Human Services Workforce Board

Providers’ Council President and CEO Michael Weekes and Advocates President and CEO Diane Gould were recently appointed to the state’s Human Services Workforce Board by Senate President Karen Spilka.

In December, the legislature allocated $30 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds for the human services sector; $16.5 million for a loan repayment program and $13.5 million for a grant program for human services organizations to support the retention and recruitment of workers.

Weekes, Gould and other Human Services Workforce Board members will discuss the funding and make recommendations on how the state should distribute the $30 million earmarked for loan repayment, retention and recruitment programs.
