Tucson's JobPath program has received a $276,000 federal grant to help train local workers in biotechnology and health-care skills, U.S. Rep. Jim Kolbe's office announced yesterday. A project of the Pima County Interfaith Council, JobPath was created to develop a long-term training strategy for unemployed or underemployed adults.

The grant, which comes through the U.S. Department of Labor's President's High Growth Job Training Initiative, will also help establish an internship program at JobPath, according to a news release.

JobPath is one of a dozen recipients from among nearly 230 applicants for more than $12 million in grants awarded through the nationwide program.
