Community College system gets $1.2M for apprenticeships

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire's community colleges have been awarded $1.2 million from the federal government to fund an apprenticeship program.

The grant will fund the ApprenticeshipUSA - New Hampshire project. It will serve 133 apprentices and will focus on underrepresented populations, including people who are low-income, have limited English proficiency or have disabilities. The program will also give priority to youth, women and veterans.

Key partners include the governor's office, the state Department of Labor, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Velcro USA, Inc., and GE Aviation.

An announcement about the grant didn't specify what type of jobs will be open for apprenticeships.
