BOCES receives a four year $1.2M grant for adult learning program

NORWICH – The forecast for adult learners in Chenango County includes an extra heavy dose of education, increasing their job qualifications, as well as exacting irreversible and positive changes in their lives, thanks to a $1,200,000 grant received by the Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego Board of Cooperative Educational Services Adult and Continuing Education Department.



The grant comes from the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance and will reimburse DCMO BOCES over a four-year period based on the successes of the program’s adult learners.

“I’ve been writing grants for 16 years here and this is by far the largest one we have received,” said Linda Thomas, DCMO BOCES employment and training programs coordinator, financial aid advisor, and grant writer. “It’s going to be just great for residents in the area.”
