Virginia gets grant for education, workforce training
In addition to the grant from the National Governor's Association, Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Friday that Virginia also has been selected to participate in an 18 month national policy academy focused on the same goals.
Officials say the grant activities will focus on increasing the attainment levels of science, technology, engineering, math, and health credentials needed for the state's current and emerging businesses and industries.
Secretary of Commerce and Trade Maurice Jones says the grant will allow Virginia to take a big step forward in terms of workforce development.
The grant will support development of a statewide marketing campaign and encourage new and expanded public and private partnerships.
