Under this legislation, Apache County Schools, Graham County Schools, and the Pinal County Education Service Agency will all receive funding for teacher training initiatives. Both Central Arizona College and Gila County Community College will receive funding for their nursing programs.

"I am pleased that the House was able to pass this important appropriations bill, which directs vital funding to numerous education programs in rural Arizona," said Congressman Renzi.
