The U.S. Department of Labor has announced a $2,774,736 National Emergency Grant to assist about 350 workers
affected by the closure of Comair at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky
International Airport in Erlanger, Ky.
The funding will provide employment
services to affected workers who reside in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
"Workers who have the skills and training employers need right now
have greater success finding jobs," said acting Secretary of Labor Seth D.
Harris. "The federal grant announced today will help former Comair workers
better position themselves for available jobs in growing industries."
grant is being awarded to the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development
Cabinet to provide training and support services to the affected workers. Comair was a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines.
Of the $2,774,736 announced
today, $1,356,574 will be released initially. Additional funding, up to the
amount approved, will be made available as the commonwealth demonstrates a
continued need for assistance.
National Emergency Grants are part of the secretary of labor's
discretionary fund and are awarded based on a state or commonwealth's ability
to meet specific guidelines. For more information, visit http://www.doleta.gov/NEG.
