Today Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis and Secretary of Education
Arne Duncan announced the solicitation for grant applications under
the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training
Grant Program (TAACCCT). Over the course of 4 years, the program will
invest $2 billion “to provide community colleges and other eligible
institutions of higher education with funds to expand and improve
their ability to deliver education and career training programs.” The
program supports President Obama’s goal of having the highest
proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020 by helping to
increase the number of workers who attain degrees, certificates and
other industry recognized credentials. The first round of funding will
be $500 million over the next year. Applications to the solicitation
are now open, and will be due April 21, 2011.
