Gardner Applauds Nearly $8 Million in Apprenticeship Grants to Colorado

Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) applauded the Department of Labor’s (DOL) announcement that it will award a combined $7,996,713 in grants to the Colorado Community College System and the Regents of the University of Colorado/University of Colorado Colorado Springs through the Apprenticeship: Closing the Skills Gap grant program.

“Colorado is home to some of the best and brightest innovators that help drive our national economy, and we must ensure the next generation of workers have the skills and training they need to enter our workforce,” said Senator Gardner. “Industries like technology currently face a workforce shortage, and these funds will help ensure more Coloradans will receive the proper training to enter fields with skills gaps.”

The Colorado entities to receive funding from the Department of Labor include:

  • $2,000,000 to the Colorado Community College System
  • $5,996,713 to the Regents of the University of Colorado/University of Colorado Colorado Springs
