The New Hampshire Technical Institute at Concord's Community College has been awarded a $2.5 million federal job-training grant aimed at boosting information technology programs.
U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen announced the U.S. Department of Labor grant on Monday.
The grant will help create new certificate and associate degree programs in information technology such as cyber security, networking and game programming. Shaheen says those skills can be applied in growing fields including health care, energy and advanced manufacturing.
The goal is to ultimately expand the programs to the state's other six community college campuses.
