Realtime grants will aid in boosting enrollment and learning resources for NCRA-certified schools

NCRA has announced that two of its certified schools, Madison College in Madison, Wis., and Green River Community College in Auburn, Wash., were recently awarded five-year grants from the U.S. Department of Education. The funding is part of the Training for Realtime Writers grants under the Higher Education Act passed by Congress in 2009.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Training for Realtime Writers grant program was, in part, approved due to a legislative campaign NCRA launched and supported throughout multiple legislative cycles. Since the Act took effect, NCRA has helped court reporting schools secure more than $16 million in Training for Realtime Writers grants.
