A $4.8 million federal Recovery Act grant is expected to help area Louisiana Technical College campuses increase the local work force.

The grant award totals nearly $4.9 million and will affect more than 700 students across the LTC Greater Acadiana region's campuses in the seven-parish area.

The funds will be used to create new programs and buy new "green" equipment to support the region's "green" training programs.

The three-year grant will enable the creation of a new training program in the area of warehouse distribution.

The injection of funding will also help the colleges maintain programs that may have suffered because of recent budget cuts.
