This bulletin appeared in the April 14th, 2015 newsletter, Issue #2, of Adult Learning Partners: "TechHire Initiative May Benefit Adult Education. Applications for federal grant funding of $100 million will be available from the Department of Labor in the fall of 2015, under President Obama's TechHire Initiative. Adult education programs developing workforce skill training services may wish to review the goals and [groundrules] of TechHire to consider their eligibility to apply. The program will work in 20 cities across the U.S. in cooperation with business, community colleges, and other venues to provide the skills needed to move underprepared adults toward well-paying technology jobs. Grants will be awarded in 2016."
