Community-Based Job Training Grants

Workforce Development and Community Colleges
In the coming years, jobs requiring at least an associate's degree are projected to grow twice as fast as those requiring no college experience. The nation needs workers with the education and skills to succeed in growing, high-wage occupations, and community colleges serve as significant and rapidly growing contributors to the nation's higher education system, enrolling more than 11.8 million students. Community colleges work with business, labor, and government in their communities to create tailored education and training programs to meet employers' needs and give students the skills required to obtain good jobs, earn family-sustaining wages, and advance along a career pathway.

Community-Based Job Training Grants
Community-Based Job Training Grants (CBJTG) are no longer funded, however there are still active grantees. These grants were designed to support workforce training for high-growth/high-demand industries through the national system of community and technical colleges. Grants under this program fund projects that provide workers with education/training that will prepare them to enter and advance in high-growth and emerging industries.
