Garden City, NY, March 13, 2022….President Biden signed the bipartisan Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations omnibus into law. The bill, which US Representative Kathleen Rice and Senator Chuck Schumer voted for, provided Congressional funding in the amount of $125,000.00 to The Corporate Source for its innovative Information Technology Training & Certification Program for People with Disabilities.
“I don’t often get to vote on legislation that has such an enormous and immediate impact on my district,” said Congresswoman Rice. “These investments will help increase our education resources, protect our local environment, rehabilitate our infrastructure, and more. I fought hard for their inclusion in the 2022 budget, and I’m proud to be able to deliver the results to Long Island today.”
“The Corporate Source is delighted to receive funding for our Information Technology Training & Certification Program for People with Disabilities, which is creating exciting career paths and providing greater opportunities for disability employment and inclusion,” said Michael Kramer, CEO of The Corporate Source. “Thank you to Congresswoman Rice for her wonderful support and joining TCS in changing lives!”
