Grant to help create manufacturing institute
Last Updated: 16:12 September 25, 2013
The institute would support manufacturing and workforce development in the region and throughout the state.
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., said Colorado is a national leader for innovation and cutting-edge ideas including areas of manufacturing. "Colorado companies are making products that the rest of the state, country and world use, and this grant will help COEDIT support those efforts of our manufacturing community by helping train workers, ultimately fostering further economic growth."
The EDA grant builds on a U.S. Department of Labor award announced last week to nine colleges across Colorado to help develop and expand innovative training programs. The training programs will help Coloradans develop skills and explore employment opportunities in fields such as advanced manufacturing, transportation and health care, as well as science, technology, engineering and math through partnerships between training providers and local employers.
