Labor Department Announces $125 Million in Job Training Grants

Forty-one community colleges and organizations will receive a share of $125 million the U.S. Department Labor awarded Tuesday for the schools and organizations to provide training for a variety of “high growth” jobs and other emerging occupations.

The money was awarded as the fifth and final round of grants under the Community-Based Job Training Grant awards announced in March.

“Our goal is to help workers across the country prepare for and secure good jobs, and with support from these colleges and other critical stakeholders, we’ll ensure we reach a broad base of individuals in need,”  U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis said in a statement.

The grants will focus primarily on providing training to workers who are unemployed, dislocated and incumbent workers.

The grantees will provide training in a variety of occupational fields, from health care to homeland security, and from green jobs to construction.
