    MONTPELIER The Randolph-based Vermont Technical College is getting a $3.4 million federal grant for training programs for state industries that support agriculture, food production, waste disposal and energy production.

    The grant will support the Applied Agriculture and Food Systems Institute at Vermont Tech.

    The grant is through the Department of Labor.

    Vermont Tech President Phil Conroy says the grant will allow the school to improve upon its degree and college-level certificates and help meet trade employment needs throughout the state.
