Louisiana getting $1 million federal job-training grant
BATON ROUGE- Louisiana is getting $1 million in federal grant money to train residents needed as employees by specific industries.
The federal money targets the Alexandria, Shreveport and Monroe areas and will be administered by the Louisiana Workforce Commission.
Much of it is earmarked for apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship training, on-the-job training and other classroom training for jobs in the technical-services, manufacturing, health care and professional employment sectors.
People targeted include those unemployed for more than 27 weeks, those whose unemployment insurance is about to expire, veterans and foreign-trained workers facing barriers to employment.
