CCM’s Center for Workforce Development receives $1M funding from Sherrill’s Community Project efforts

County College of Morris recently announced that U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill secured Community Project funding of $1 million in support of the college’s workforce development programs. The funding will bring CCM programs to the Dover community and will emphasize the health care, technology, engineering and manufacturing fields.

“CCM is grateful for this support and the impact it will have on individual lives within the local community of Dover,” CCM President Anthony Iacono said. “Rep. Sherrill has been a huge supporter of CCM and has shown her deep level of commitment to our mission of changing lives and strengthening communities.”

“The work that this college does to meet the workforce needs of Morris County and the state of New Jersey is critical,” Sherrill (D-11th Dist.) said. “With this Community Project funding, CCM will be able to bring the workforce development training to residents of Dover. I want to thank Dr. Iacono and the entire team at CCM for their work on behalf of the residents of Morris County and for submitting this project that will make our communities an even better place to live, work and learn.”
