GRAND RAPIDS — The JPMorgan Chase Foundation recently awarded Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) a $45,000 grant to develop the institution’s industrial sewing and logistics programs.

The new grant will expand GRCC’s industrial sewing program to include additional students and allow it to partner with the Makers Association, Industrial Fabrics Association International and Detroit Garment Group, according to a statement released today.

GRCC received a previous grant from the foundation in 2014 to initially fund the industrial sewing pilot program.

The institution will also use a portion of the new grant to add national logistics and supply chain certifications.
