N.Y. – The SUNY system of community colleges has applied for a federal grant
that would help unemployed upstate New Yorkers and veterans find jobs.
$23 million would help train up to 6,000 New Yorkers and veterans for jobs in
fields like nursing, lab technicians and paramedic positions.
Chuck Schumer tells NEWS CENTER he's excited about the grant and is pushing for
of the local community colleges that could benefit from the grant include Schenectady,
Adirondack, HVCC, Fulton-Montgomery and Herkimer.
