Rapid Recovery & Reemployment (R3) Short-term Training

BHCC’s Rapid Recovery and Reemployment (R3) Program is a unique grant-funded program that allows students or community members impacted by the COVID-19 economic downturn to get back in the game with financially supported training. Eligible participants will have access to full tuition and materials scholarships, as well as a stipend for successful attendance and completion. These short-term trainings will allow a student to study over a shorter period of time, develop skills in a field, and earn an industry-recognized credential, which makes them employable quicker. 

Students who are unemployed or demonstrate financial need will be considered first. If you can answer yes to one of the following questions you are financially eligible.

  •   Are you unemployed or working part time making less than 17.00 per hour?
  •   New to the workforce?
  •   Have you received a Pell grant?
  •   Are you collecting food stamps or other transitional assistance benefits?
  •   Do you live in subsidized housing?
