Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced the award of $2 million in re-employment funding for 14 educational institutions that have demonstrated a track record of training and placing adult students into occupations that are in high demand by local employers.

The funds provide for equipment purchases and upgrades to provide adult students with industry-relevant training to better meet the needs of local employers, Wolf said in a statement.

Approved through the Department of Labor & Industry, the technology grants support equipment purchases and/or upgrades at Pennsylvania's post-secondary career and technical centers and colleges of technology to more effectively prepare adult students for entry into Pennsylvania's competitive employment marketplace.
