Program Area:
Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:
Hertford
Description:

This grant provides funding to Roanoke-Chowan Community College to establish two satellite campuses in Northampton County at which the college will offer short-term training programs. In addition, the college will leverage a distance-learning grant awarded by USDA to provide other training at both of the remote sites and award transportation vouchers to the students to travel to the campus in Ahoskie for any required hands-on labs. The college plans to serve 50 students at each site with short-term classes, completed in three to eight months, that lead to industry-recognized credentials in demand by the local industry to include truck driver training, Nurse Aide I and II, diesel mechanics, facilities maintenance, construction trades, heavy equipment operation, agribusiness, plate welding, production technology, and other programs. Earned FTE funds generated through enrollment in the programs will support continued program and instructional needs. Golden LEAF funds will be used for renovations, equipment and supplies, transportation, personnel and marketing.
