Virginia To Receive Six Million In Federal Grants for Job Training Programs For Laid-Off Workers

Virginia is receiving more than six million dollars in federal funds for job training programs for laid-off workers. The money is going to the Community College system to enhance job training services for the long-term unemployed.  Officials say the funds will be used to train workers who lost a job through no fault of their own for jobs in high-demand industries.  It is part of a larger 155 million dollar package nationwide in a grant through the US Department of labor and  will create or help to expand employer partnerships and provide career counseling and job placement.
