State Sen. Jim Brewster today announced a total of $26.5 million in state funds for construction work at the community colleges in Allegheny and Westmoreland County.

“As our community colleges become a more viable and important educational opportunities for area students, I am pleased that state funds are being used to improve and expand their facilities.”

According to Brewster, the state Department of Education has approved $20 million for the Community College of Allegheny County for construction of its Workforce Training Center. An additional $6.5 million was earmarked for Westmoreland County Community College to modernize its Enterprise Resource Planning System.

The department monies represent 50 percent of the annual capital expense for the projects, with the remainder financed by local sponsorship. 

“I will continue to seek state support for projects and programs that enhance our community colleges,” Brewster said.
