Storm-wracked Kingsborough Community College will receive the lion’s share of a $7-million federal grant for new job-training programs.

The Department of Labor grant to the City University of New York will be split between Kingsborough, which will get $3.9 million, and LaGuardia Community College in Queens, receiving $3.2 million, according to Sen. Charles Schumer, who announced the grant.

“These grants are a game-changer for Kingsborough Community College,” said Schumer. “Training our young people today for the jobs of tomorrow will pave the path to keeping New York City at the top of the heap for generations to come.”

The grant comes as part of New York’s slice of $474.5 million being doled out by the US Department of Labor to schools across the country to build career training programs that can be completed in two years or less.
