Owens Community College, along with five other community colleges and BioOhio, will receive a $5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration to implement the Ohio Bioscience Industry Workforce Preparedness project.

The three-year project will provide training to 660 displaced or underemployed workers in declining industries to help them become better equipped for careers in Ohio’s growing biomedical industry. In addition, 40 incumbent workers will receive advanced training to be able to move into higher-level jobs, creating new entry-level job opportunities for unemployed adults.

Other partners in the statewide project consortium include Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, Columbus State Community College, Cuyahoga Community College, Lakeland Community College and Sinclair Community College, with strong support from the Ohio Board of Regents. CAEL (The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning), a national non-profit organization focused on workforce development and adult learning, will serve a technical assistance role.
