Laughlin Announces Nearly $160,000 in Grant Funding for Erie County Schools

HARRISBURG – Sen. Dan Laughlin (R-49) is proud to announce Erie County schools have been awarded a total of nearly $160,000 in grant funding through Pennsylvania’s Career and Technical Education Supplemental Equipment Purchase Program to obtain new training equipment for their students.

“The nearly $75,000 granted to the Erie City School District and the nearly $85,000 granted to the Erie County Technical School will allow for the purchase of instructional equipment that will be used to prepare students for the workplace and a career,” said Laughlin. “The importance of career and technical education is that it not only teaches students about things, but how to do them as well; that translates into graduates who are employment-ready for a variety of great-paying, in-demand jobs when entering the workforce.”
