$474.5M Awarded for Skills Training Partnerships

The latest round of Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants has been awarded to community colleges and universities around the country for the development and expansion of innovative training programs in partnership with local employers.

The 57 grants, totaling $474.5 million, are meant to foster programs in growing industries, such as advanced manufacturing, transportation and health care, and to support geographic and industry sector collaboration through the creation of statewide and regional college consortia.

Grantees in this round were required to demonstrate:

  • local labor market need for education in specific industries
  • strong employer engagement in training activities and work-based learning
  • a commitment to evidence-based program design and rigorous third-party evaluation
  • the use of stacked and latticed credentials
  • a clear plan for the transferability and articulation of course credit
  • advanced online and technology-enabled learning
  • strategic alignment with the workforce system and other partners
  • the ability to leverage previously funded TAACCCT projects

In addition, the 11 single-state consortia grantees will be required to incorporate data to develop programs and to communicate results to the public.
