Texas Military Preparedness Commission recently awarded Coastal Bend College a $447,000 grant to be used for power technology equipment. CBC is one of three community colleges in Texas to be awarded grant funding. The purpose of the grant is to help communities impacted by Base Realignment and Closure and to provide equipment to community colleges so that they can provide training for veterans and people living in defense industry communities. The goal of the grant program is to increase or retain employment opportunities for defense workers and residents of adversely affected defense communities. Currently, CBC has the equipment to do training in airframe technology. The funds will help fulfill a need for simulators and other equipment for a lab where students can train in airframe and power technology.
