ALPENA, Mich. (AP) — 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.
The office of Gov. Rick Snyder says Alpena Community College plans a four-year project to help up to 300 adults in northeastern Michigan. Money for Wayne County Community College District will go to the Wayne County Generation Cyber Project.
Vice President Joe Biden and the secretaries of Education and Labor are announcing winners Monday at the White House. Linking job training to industry demand is key to the Obama administration's strategy to improve wages and reduce unemployment.
Nationwide, $450 million is being distributed.
