The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) announced the availability of up to $500 million in grant funds to be awarded under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grants program (TAACCCT). These funds were available to eligible institutions of higher education to serve workers who are eligible for training under the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) for Workers program in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The TAACCCT provided community colleges and other eligible institutions of higher education with funds to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that can be completed in two years or less; are suited for workers who are eligible for training under the TAA for Workers program; and prepare program participants for employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations. The Department intends to fund grants ranging from $2.5 million to $5 million for individual applicants and from $2.5 million to $20 million for consortium applicants.
