Macon's Central Georgia Technical College is receiving $2.6 million in federal grants.

The money is part of the Obama administration's plan to expand demanding skills training and improve employer partnerships.

Georgia will receive more than $5 million total in grant money. The 57 grants will support 190 projects in at least 183 schools in every state plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

The grants will expand programs in growing industries, such as advanced manufacturing, transportation and health care.

"Money will help us leaverage our different education offerings so that we can provide some high demand healthcare training to people in our rural community." -- Dr. Amy Holloway, CGTC Vice President of Academic Affairs
