CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia is receiving more than $6 million in federal funds for job training programs for laid-off workers.

The U.S. Department of Labor is awarding more than $154.7 million nationwide through the Job-Driven National Emergency Grant program.

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.

Labor Secretary Thomas Perez says providing workers with access to the skills training needed to pursue in-demand jobs is critical to expanding opportunity and to helping businesses grow and thrive.

The funding will help create or expand employer partnerships and provide career counseling and job placement.
