Community College System gets grant

The Community College System of New Hampshire has been awarded a $20 million competitive federal grant - the largest in the system's history - to develop training programs to support the state's manufacturing industry.

Chancellor J. Bonnie Newman said the money will enable its seven community colleges to prepare workers for jobs that meet the industry's current and emerging needs and are specific to each college's region. Newman said the money won't replace state funds cut from the system's budget, but will make focused efforts possible in partnership with business.

Gov. John Lynch said the grant is a tremendous amount of funding that will allow the state to expand its worker training efforts and help companies grow and compete.
