Montana colleges have been awarded a $15 million grant to expand opportunities for Montanans to gain skills and credentials for high-paying jobs in the healthcare industry across the state. Through the “Montana HealthCARE” (Creating Access to Rural Education)Mont grant, which will be administered by Missoula College University of Montana, 15 Montana two-year, community colleges, and tribal colleges will partner with 39 healthcare providers—both public and private—to improve health care training opportunities in the state.
John Cech, with the Office of Commissioner of Higher Education wrote: "Montana’s success speaks very well to the quality of Montana’s proposal and the great team from the University of Montana, MT Dept of Labor and Industry, MSU’s Office of Rural Health, MHA…An Association of Healthcare Providers, and many industry representatives who worked on this great effort!"
Here, at AHEC, we note the dedication of Barry Kenfield, Director, and Kaye Norris, Asst. Director, who were in the office 24-7 during July.
