Des Moines Area Community College has been awarded an $88,460 grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The DMACC Transportation Institute will use the grant to recruit, train and graduate 20 military veterans and assist them with career placement. The grant money will help cover tuition, fees and other related costs of obtaining a commercial driver’s license. DMACC was one of nine institutions across the country to receive this funding. Both active military/reservists and veterans, as well as their spouses and children, are eligible for assistance.
