2 community colleges get $5M
Two community colleges in Michigan that are partnering with employers on job training are getting about $5 million from the Obama administration.
Alpena Community College is getting $2.5 million and the Wayne County Community College District in Detroit is getting nearly $2.5 million.
Vice President Joe Biden and the secretaries of Education and Labor are announcing the grant winners Monday at the White House. Linking job training to industry demand is key to the administration’s strategy to improve wages and reduce unemployment.
Nationwide, $450 million is being distributed to nearly 270 community colleges.
