ALBANY, N.Y. - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced $7 million in awards for SUNY workforce development programs.

A press release says this year’s awards fund programs at 37 different colleges and universities and focus on the fields of engineering, renewable clean energy, healthcare, public health, biomedical-biotechnical, information technology and business and finance.

“By focusing on developing a workforce in these particular fields, we are positioning the economy for significant growth and helping people thrive in vibrant evolving industries across the State,” Governor Cuomo said. “The job training programs we are funding today provide students with the skills they need to succeed in some of the most rapidly expanding parts of the private sector – which also helps New York businesses find the talent they need to grow."
