DES MOINES, Iowa (KCAU) — On Monday, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds announced a new program to provide more opportunities for truck drivers to get their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) in the state.

Reynolds said the Iowa entry-level driver training program will break down barriers that currently exists for getting a CDL.

The program will provide $6 million to support employers, non-profits, or organizations to prepare potential drivers for CDL skills or knowledge tests. The State of Iowa will start to accept applications for the grant on December 13.
