Posted by Ben Seigel - On October 29, 2014 (EST)

Training America's workers with the skills they need for a good job can help middle class families and help American businesses grow our economy. While America's businesses have created 10 million jobs over the past 54 months, the longest streak of uninterrupted job growth in our country's history, we need to do more to train Americans with the skills they need, and connect them with businesses that are looking for skilled workers.

While America's businesses have created 10 million jobs over the past 54 months, the longest streak of uninterrupted job growth in our country's history, we need to do more to train Americans with the skills they need, and connect them with businesses that are looking for skilled workers.

On September 29, as part of this effort, Vice President Biden, Secretary Thomas E. Perez, and Secretary Arne Duncan announced the winners of $450 million in job-driven training grants going to nearly 270 community colleges across the country. The funding is part of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) competitive grant program, which is co-administered by the Department of Labor and Department of Education.

The grants will provide community colleges and other eligible institutions of higher education with funds to partner with employers to expand and improve their ability to deliver education and career training programs that will help job seekers get the skills they need for in-demand jobs in industries like information technology, health care, energy, and advanced manufacturing.
