Erie Technical Institutes Awarded State COVID-19 Safety Grants

Two local technical institutions were today (August 3) awarded state grants to help them safely reopen as Pennsylvania continues to address the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Senator Dan Laughlin.

Erie Institute of Technology was awarded $11,797 and Great Lakes Institute of Technology was awarded $20,900. The funding will be used to implement public health and safety plans to help keep students, faculty and staff safe and assist these institutions in meeting the unique challenges of providing instruction during COVID-19.

“Since these schools provide technical training that prepares their students to walk off campus and right into quality professions, it is essential that we take every step possible to ensure their continued safe operations,” Senator Laughlin said. “These grants are an excellent investment of a portion of Pennsylvania’s federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding that will pay dividends well into the future for our community.”
