WASHINGTON, March 4, 2010 – The Commerce Department announced Wednesday a $4.7 million investment in Nevada.

The funds are intended to help boost economic and technological opportunies in Clark County. The grant will upgrade or open a total of 29 public computer centers in public housing developments and community and senior centers, as well as provide computer skills classes, job training and certification programs, and support community health programs through local partner organizations.

The investment will enable the Las Vegas-Clark County Urban League, in partnership with the City of Las Vegas and the Housing Authority of the County of Clark, to expand broadband access by replacing approximately 100 computer workstations and adding more than 90 new ones. As a result, the centers will nearly triple the number of users served per week to nearly 5,000, expanding access to interactive and online job search tools, and training in English and Spanish.
