WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that Eastern Iowa Community College in Davenport has been awarded $26,518 from the Department of Transportation’s National Summer Transportation Institute Program (NSTI). The funding will be used to promote awareness of educational and career opportunities among disadvantaged and at-risk middle and high school students around the country. Harkin is a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and the subcommittee that funds the DOT.
“Job training and educational programs like NSTI provide resources that help prepare young Iowans for good jobs in high-demand industries. This is an investment that provides opportunity and promotes job growth for local communities,” said Harkin. “I congratulate Eastern Iowa Community College on this award and look forward to the progress these classes will bring.”
Specifically, Eastern Iowa Community College will use the funds to host educational classes focusing on transportation careers for Quad Cities area high school students.
