We help keep costs low, so you can focus on what matters.

In fact, we manage grants ranging from a few hundred to a few million dollars!

Who do we work with?

Currently, we work with over 25 different funders, including the U.S. Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, Lockheed Martin and The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. 

In the 2019/2020 academic year, we helped bring in over $750,000 of competitive or renewal funding, contributing to over $7 million of currently managed funds. RCBC’s grant specialists are constantly working with members of the community to earn more grants and to develop RCBC to better serve students. 

In addition to working on grants for the college, we also work with our community members. RCBC has served as the educational and/or training partner on multiple grants for other institutions, and the Grants Office has helped form those connections. If your institution wants to work with RCBC as a partner on your grant proposal, please fill out the form below or email us at grants@rcbc.edu.

Program Highlights

See what we’ve been up to this month!

Women and Minorities in Construction

In January of 2020, the Workforce Development Institute (WDI) at RCBC was awarded a $51,849 grant to run two, 30-person cohorts of its Energy Industry Fundamentals course. These funds were awarded from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Training for the purpose of training women and minorities for jobs in construction trades. As a part of this grant funded program, participants will receive free training in Energy Industry Fundamentals and will be placed in utility jobs after training. 

In the utility industry, the Energy Industry Fundamentals training is an in-demand credential for water meter readers, utility locators, safety watchers, and carpenters. Out of the 60 people trained in Energy Industry Fundamentals, the WDI projects about 66% of participants will be placed in full-time employment and 34% will be placed in apprenticeship programs. Being that construction trades are traditionally white and male, the WDI's program (with the support of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Training) is working to redefine the landscape of the construction industry by training underrepresented groups and granting them the ability to earn a high-paying wage in an evolving industry.

NJ Endures

The NJ Endures funding, awarded as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, allows RCBC to train 13 individuals in the Supply Chain Pro Fundamentals course, preparing them for employment in the Transportation, Logistics, and Distribution sector. This $77,000 dollar award fully pays for training and job placement, thus changing the career potential of our Burlington County participants. This grant is overseen by Linda Bobo and the Workforce Development Institute team, with programmatic delivery by Helen Carroll, Ann McCollum, and Alison DeJoseph. With classes currently in-session, this grant will run until September 1st, 2021.
