FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Months after Bitwise abruptly shut down, there is more support coming for former employees in Fresno County.
Tuesday morning, the Fresno Regional Workforce Development Board announced a $2.3 million grant from the state's Employment Development Department.
The funds will be used for a Bitwise Redeployment Center in the former Bitwise Building on Van Ness.
There will also be access to both business and personal resources to get those former employees on a path that best suits their needs.
During a news conference, state and local leaders addressed the hardships those employees have faced.
Another $1 million will go to supporting former apprentices.
