N.C. Governor Wants $60 Million for Job Training

Gov. Roy Cooper proposed a new $20 million grant program Wednesday to help people finish college even when financial emergencies soak up their tuition money.

It would be part of $60 million the governor plans to put in his forthcoming budget proposal: $20 million for these “Finish Line Grants,” $30 million to boost free job training in high-demand fields and another $10 million in competitive grants to businesses to set up paid internships and apprentice programs.
