IU-13 and Lancaster County RMO Receive US Dept of Education grant for reentry education

on Wednesday - June 05, 2013.

Lancaster-Lebanon IU-13 in partnership with the Lancaster County Reentry Management Organization has received a US Department of Education grant for reentry education that will enable us to expand access to adult education, GED preparation classes, occupational skills trainings, and career and education planning for people being released from prison back into Lancaster County. The grant will also allow for expansion of GED preparation and adult education services already offered by IU 13 inside Lancaster County Prison. This two year grant begins on July 1, 2013 and will continue until June, 2015. Lancaster County received one of only three grants awarded across the entire United States. Other grant recipients are community colleges in Wisconsin and Kansas.

Planning is currently underway for the expansion of these services under the grant. Questions can be directed to Trish Link at This email address is being protected from spambots.
