Rapid Recovery & Reemployment (R3) Short-term Training

BHCC’s Rapid Recovery and Reemployment (R3) Program is a unique opportunity that allows students or community members impacted by the COVID-19 economic downturn to get back in the game with possible financial support. Eligible participants may have access to full tuition and materials scholarships. 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 will be required to meet attendance and other requirements to access all funding opportunities. View R3 FAQs for more information.

Students who are unemployed or demonstrate great financial need will be considered first especially if you do not have financial assistance through another resource.

  •   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?

If you have questions about your eligibility or the requirements, please contact Lateia Johnson, R3 Coordinator, lmjo8989@bhcc.edu
