$400,000.00
Program Area:
Community-Based Grantsmaking Initiative
County of Applicant:
Durham
Description:

This grant provides funding to Durham Technical Community College to support the expansion of the college’s existing manufacturing programs. The college currently offers pieces of an advanced manufacturing degree pathway, including PLC, robotics, and hydraulics. This project will expand those programs to build-out a formal advanced manufacturing pathway. Local industry partners (Merck, Bell and Howell, Purdue Pharma, AW, Biogen, KBI, and Morinaga Foods) have requested updated training in automation for new and existing workers that will lead to a more highly skilled workforce. Golden LEAF funds will be used for updated training equipment, renovations, FESTO certification training, and initial funding to cover instructor salaries.
