CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Casper College is among the community colleges around the nation receiving federal grant money for job training initiatives.

The federal government is handing out nearly a half-billion dollars in grants to about 270 community colleges nationwide.

Casper College will receive about $2.5 million.
