ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

ATLANTA (AP) - Two Georgia community colleges have been awarded $5.68 million from the Obama administration to expand partnerships with local employers.

U.S. Department of Labor officials said Thursday that the grants are part of a national pot of $474.5 million.

The grants are aimed at developing programs to help community colleges and universities across the country expand programs to train students to develop skill sets to meet the needs of local employers.

Officials say Central Georgia Technical College will be given more than $2.6 million and Moultrie Technical College will be given more than $3 million.

Labor officials say 57 grants being distributed across the country will help support 190 projects in at least 183 schools in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
