With "addition of Louisiana and Ohio, 32 states and District of Columbia have now joined "Elevate America," initiative launched on Feb 22, 2009 to provide people across United States with access to no-cost technology training & certification that helps them find employment. So far, we've offered more than 800,000 free training and certification vouchers through our partnerships.

Microsoft will contribute $2 million in cash and up to $6 million in software over next two years to help support technology training," Pamela Passman.
