Wolf Administration Announces Construction of Workforce Training Hub at Indiana County Technology Center
August 24, 2018
Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced the Indiana County Technology Center (ICTC) will receive funding to construct a workforce training hub for students from kindergarten through college.
“This exciting project will allow for a unique comprehensive training facility for students of all ages and learning levels,” Governor Wolf said. “Workforce training is a key goal of my administration and projects such as the ICTC represent an excellent opportunity for students to get the training they need to find successful careers in Pennsylvania.”
The ICTC was approved for a $750,000 grant to renovate and expand its facility to create a 25,000-square-foot workforce training hub for students in kindergarten through college. The new building will include the addition of a satellite campus of the Westmoreland County Community College (WCCC) and the Central Allegheny Challenger Learning Center. Additionally, the project will include cross-programming, cross-certification, and other degree opportunities through the WCCC, the Central Allegheny Challenger Learning Center, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The project aligns with the Wolf Administration’s workforce development goals by providing necessary workforce training.
“This project will provide students throughout Indiana County with new educational opportunities and help develop the skilled workforce that is so desperately needed throughout our region,” said Senator Donald White. “This funding will allow the project to quickly move forward at no direct cost to ICTC, the Indiana County School Districts that send students there, and ultimately local taxpayers.”
Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.
