This study provides an in-depth analysis of the Community-Based Job Training Grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor from 2005 to 2008. The primary research question is designed to identify the most important factors in meeting grant-training outcomes; however, numerous secondary questions were addressed to provide the reader with in-depth knowledge of this specific funding track. Literature on the mission and history of community colleges, federal funding for workforce training, and the funding struggles facing community colleges was used to support the research.
Logistic regression analysis was used to answer the primary research question, and descriptive statistics was used to identify regional differences, most popular target industry sectors, and funding patterns based on the Carnegie Basic Classification system. Following data analyses, the researcher discussed findings, conclusions, and recommendations for policy, practice, and future study.
