The U.S. Department of Labor's $7.1 million grant to the City University of New York is to be divided between Kingsborough and LaGuardia Community College in Queens, with KCC getting $3.9 million and LaGuardia receiving the remaining $3.2 million, Sen. Charles Schumer said in announcing the funding.

It's "a game-changer, " he said. "[The grants] will pave the path to keeping New York City at the top of the heap for generations to come."

The money is part of the Labor Department's $475.5 million program to help schools across the country offer career training designed be completed in two years or less.
