Central Alabama Community College secures $10 million funding deal for campus renovations in Childersburg and Alexander City


CHILDERSBURG AND ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. – In a resounding win for the institution’s educational and facility development, Central Alabama Community College (CACC) has secured a significant funding deal of $10 million for the fiscal year (FY) 2023.

The funds are earmarked for renovations at both the Childersburg and Alexander City campuses. The announcement was made during legislative receptions held at the two locations along with the Prattville campus.

CACC President Jeff Lynn expressed his appreciation, saying, “We are grateful to our legislative delegation for their unwavering support in securing these crucial funds. Their belief in the value of community college education and their dedication to our institution will have a lasting impact on our students and the communities we serve.”

“This achievement is a testament to the power of collaboration and a shared vision,” Scott Hardy, CACC’s Director of Governmental Affairs, added. “Working hand-in-hand with our legislators and partners, we’ve realized what’s possible when we unite to improve and elevate education in Alabama.”

Another $2 million was secured for the Marine Technology and Construction building programs, and CACC announced that it will have a six percent increase in funding for Operational and Maintenance matters in 2024.
