Led by the League for Innovation in the Community College, the college along with other selected colleges, will create programs and services for low-income individuals over the next few years with a $3.5 million grant donated by the Walmart Foundation.

Each participating college will receive up to $233,333, for training and service purposes. Individuals will also obtain job counseling and assistance with résumé writing and interviewing techniques.
