Secretary Duncan Visits Milwaukee, Announces Grant Competition to Retrain Displaced Workers

Yesterday Secretary Duncan visited the Milwaukee Area Technical College to announce a $7 million grant competition to establish innovative and sustainable community college programs that prepare displaced workers for second careers. The idea is to develop national models that can be replicated across the country, particularly in communities where autoworkers have lost their jobs.

See the press release and the Federal Register notice announcing the competition.
