NIFA Invests $4.7 Million in Agricultural Workforce Training at Community Colleges (AFRI A7601)

The Agricultural Workforce Training at Community Colleges (AWT) program area within the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative seeks to develop a workforce ready for the field as well as industry jobs in the food and agricultural sector. Through the development of new workforce training programs, or the expansion, improvement or renewal of existing workforce training programs at community, junior and technical colleges/institutes, this program will expand job-based, experiential learning opportunities, acquisition of industry-accepted credentials and occupational competencies for students to enable a work-ready labor force for the 21st century.
