The Strengthening Community Colleges Training Grants Program (referred to as Strengthening Community Colleges or SCC) aims to build the capacity of community colleges to collaborate with employers and the public workforce development system to meet local and regional labor market demand for a skilled workforce. The grants also build the capacity of community colleges to address challenges associated with the COVID-19 health crisis, such as expanding online and technology-enabled learning and migrating services to a virtual environment.
The SCC Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is available on grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=327958 under the "related documents tab." Please note that Amendment 1 was added to the Related Documents tab on September 16.
