The Capital Region REDC

Saratogo Race Course is one of the Capital District's popular attractions.

The Capital Region is an attractive place to do business. Among its assets are: a strategic location with proximity to all major markets in the northeast; an extraordinary quality of life with a mix of suburban rural communities and medium sized cities, including the Capital City; a highly skilled workforce and the many world renowned academic and research institutions. These intellectual centers provide unparalleled economic development potential as well as opportunities for companies to grow and expand, especially in high tech and knowledge based industries.

Project Spotlight: SUNY ATTAIN LAB in Albany's South End Opens its Doors

Earlier this month, representatives from the CREDC joined Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region, the Albany Housing Authority, The State University of New York University Center for Academic and Workforce Development (SUNY UCAWD), and other state and local officials to officially cut the ribbon on the newest Advanced Technology Training And Information Networking (ATTAIN) lab, housed at the Capital South Campus Center in Albany.

The lab, one of 36 located across New York State’s most economically challenged urban and rural communities, was created to provide ongoing access to education and training through the use of technology.

Establishment of the ATTAIN lab in Albany’s South End neighborhood is a priority of the CREDC, and an important part of the Council’s plan to address gaps in workforce training, particularly in underserved areas of the region and in-demand industries. The project was awarded two grants totaling $475,000 from Empire State Development in Round 3, including a $100,000 Opportunity Agenda grant geared to combat unemployment and revitalize distressed communities in the region.

As a certified Microsoft IT Academy, the ATTAIN lab will provide personalized pre-employment and job readiness training, and offer over 32 occupational, academic and self-development courses including resume preparation, computer literacy, High School Equivalency, English as a Second Language, college preparatory, and industry recognized Microsoft certifications at no cost to participants.

The Center is designed to address the needs of the community, as highlighted by the findings of the American Communities Survey, a study conducted by the University at Albany, which reported that there are more than 17,000 adult learners in Albany who do not have a post-secondary education.
