The Greater Memphis Alliance for a Competitive Workforce (GMACWorkforce) program was funded through a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant from the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (DOL/ETA). The grant focused on creating or enhancing programs for the manufacturing and transportation, distribution and logistics (TDL) industries in the greater Memphis area at four colleges: Arkansas State University Mid-South, Southwest Tennessee Community College, Tennessee College of Applied Technology–Memphis, and William R. Moore College of Technology. The goal of the grant was to develop new, and enhance existing, relationships between industry and training programs to align industry needs with program curriculum and certifications with the goal of preparing students for employment in the identified sectors.
The implementation analysis describes key relationships and processes in the implementation of the TAACCCT IV grant; identifies factors affecting outcomes; and documents and analyzes the work for application in future projects.
