The Cleveland Community Development Corporation, the Dayton Community Development Corporation, and the Liberty Community Development Corporation have been, and continue to be, strong partners of the LCWA. They are an integral part of The Academy. Collectively, these organizations have contributed a significant amount of funds enabling The Academy to provide local employers with trained employees to meet today's workforce demands while improving the quality of life in the communities they represent. Not only do these groups provide scholarship assistance for job training needs, but they are actively involved in the daily operations and oversight of the Liberty County Workforce Academy.
The Houston-Galveston Area Council has awarded LCWA a grant in the amount of $25,000 to cover operating costs for 2009-2010. H-GAC's continued support promotes the growth and success of LCWA and is greatly appreciated.
