The US Department of Labor / Employment & Training Administration has announced the availability of approximately 20 grants of $100,000 to $500,000 to support technology-based learning  projects (PDF link). Successful grantees will need to target high-demand occupations (requiring labor market information and analysis) and demonstrate the existence of a regional partnership that brings together education providers, the workforce system, and employers.

As always, users of EMSI’s Strategic Advantage can contact us for free customer support regarding the use of labor market information to discover high-growth industries and occupations in their area.
