AUSTIN (AP) - A state workforce training initiative for military veterans is being expanded from four to 10 colleges and universities.

The Texas Workforce Commission says it’s awarding $1.5 million to support College for Credit for Heroes.

The program awards college credits for veterans’ experience to ease their way into the civilian workforce.

The program began last year with the Alamo Community College District in San Antonio, Lee College in Baytown, Lone Star College System in the Houston area and the San Jacinto Community College District in Pasadena.

The commission says it is adding Angelo State University in San Angelo, Austin Community College District in Austin, Dallas County Community College District in the Dallas area, Grayson College in Denison, Tarrant County College District in the Fort Worth area and Texas State Technical College-Harlingen.
