Washington -- U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao announced a grant of nearly $1.6 million to train workers for careers in the information technology (IT) industry. The grant, awarded to the Vermont Governor's IT Training Initiative, is part of a training effort funded under the President's High Growth Job Training Initiative, a strategic plan that emphasizes partnerships to prepare workers for jobs in America's fastest growing and economically vital industries.

"Vermont's information technology sector needs skilled workers," said Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao. "This nearly $1.6 million grant will help workers with mentoring, internships, apprenticeships and other supportive services that will help them get jobs and succeed in this industry."

The Vermont Governor's IT Training Initiative will use the grant to increase the pipeline of workers in the IT industry by establishing a statewide information technology training infrastructure, including mentored internships, apprenticeships, web-based technology, statewide outreach and strong partnerships.
