$450 Million in Training Grants Going to Nearly 270 Community Colleges

Vice President Joe Biden, Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced the winners.

Vice President Joe Biden, Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced the winners of $450 million in job-driven training grants going to nearly 270 community colleges across the country. The funding is part of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) competitive grant program, which is co-administered by the Department of Labor and Department of of Education.

The grants will provide community colleges and other eligible institutions of higher education with funds to partner with employers to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that will help job seekers get the skills they need for in-demand jobs in industries such as information technology, health care, energy, and advanced manufacturing.

These types of job-driven training partnerships were also identified in the vice president's job-driven training report. The report identified a job-driven "checklist" as a tool to maximize the effectiveness of more than 25 competitive grant programs, to direct state and local training and employment programs to become more job-driven, to make sure all federal employment and training programs are engaging employers, and to improve information on employment results.
