Manufacturing, Defense & Aerospace Workforce Training and Education Grants

Through a large collaborative network, Macomb Community College took the initiative and led a regional effort to transition the region’s veterans, unemployed, displaced and dislocated workers, primarily with automotive and manufacturing industry background, into full-time employment.

The grant would prepare workers in Southeast Michigan for jobs in the defense, manufacturing, and aerospace sectors by filling knowledge and skill needs in acquisitions and logistics, engineering and advanced technology. While initially targeting defense, the skill sets were applicable to multiple industries with training offered in 8 counties throughout Southeast Michigan.
