PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The White House is adding 15 new communities to its "TechHire" initiative for getting low-skilled workers jobs in the tech economy.

The expansion comes a year after President Barack Obama announced the program and days before he's scheduled to speak at the South by Southwest technology festival in Austin, Texas.
