Community colleges win grants totaling $12.5 million

Nine Washington community colleges have been awarded nearly $12.5 million in federal grants to provide training programs for adults.

The competitive grants are part of a $450 million award announced Monday under a program called the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training initiative. It’s the fourth and final round of the competition, which has provided nearly $2 billion over four years to fund programs at 1,060 colleges.

One of the grants, for nearly $10 million, is going to a consortium of colleges including Centralia, Everett, Shoreline, South Seattle, Green River and Walla Walla community colleges, and Bates and Renton technical colleges. The money will fund a program called Washington Integrated Sector Employment, which brings together clean energy, construction and advanced manufacturing sectors. It’s expected to reach nearly 2,000 adults, including veterans.

The other grant, for nearly $2.5 million, was awarded to Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood to develop a pathway into advanced manufacturing and industrial technology careers. It’s expected to reach long-term unemployed workers and veterans.
