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

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Roanoke-Chowan Community College (RCCC) to establish the Universal Technical Training Center to serve residents in Hertford, Bertie and Northampton counties. The Young Building on campus will be renovated to provide 1,864 square feet for lab training and 200 square feet for two offices and storage space. RCCC expects to provide short-term training — lasting three to eight months — that leads to industry-recognized credentials in facilities maintenance, construction trades, heavy equipment operation, agribusiness, plate welding, production technology, truck driver training (CDL) and other programs. The college seeks to serve up to 250 students annually. The college will also leverage a distance-learning grant awarded by USDA to make technical training available to residents in Lewiston Woodville, Powellsville, Windsor, Rich Square and Conway. Golden LEAF funds will be used for renovation of the Young Building, educational materials, equipment, supplies, personnel, marketing and scholarships.
