Louisiana Gets $6 Million in Federal Job-Training Funds for Laid Off Workers

Louisiana is among a group of 32 states getting a portion of more than $154 million awarded by the federal government for job training laid-off workers in high-demand industries.

The U.S. Department of Labor announced Thursday (June 26) that Louisiana will get a federal grant of $6,175,000 to provide training in various industries through the Job-Driven National Emergency Grand program.

“At the President’s request, I’ve been leading an effort to help Americans get the skills they need to secure good quality jobs that are a path to the middle class,” Vice President Joe Biden announced Thursday.

“The grants announced today will help build partnerships between industry, labor and communities to help more Americans learn about job openings, identify what skills are needed to fill them, and train and apply for the good-paying jobs that are out there in health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing and other high-growth industries.”
