WORCESTER - Alongside several public officials, Congressman Jim McGovern announced $3 million in federal funding to support African Community Education (ACE) on Friday morning. The funding will support creating a new immigrant and refugee services facility in Worcester.

The facility has already been acquired by ACE and will host educational, workforce development, and cultural programming serving low-income English language learners.

McGovern secured the funding through the end-of-year omnibus spending bill passed by the House and Senate in December.

The event was held at the ACE facility on Gage Street and included State Senators Robyn Kennedy and Michael Moore, School Committee Members Jermoh Kamara and Sue Mailman, and Worcester City Manager Eric Batista.
