DOL Opens Training Grant Competition
The grants will provide critical job training to low-income and older workers.
According to a U.S. Department of Labor announcement, DOL is making $338 million in grants competitively available to organizations that would use them to provide job training to low-income, older American workers through the Senior Community Service Employment Program.
"The funds announced today will provide important opportunities for low-income seniors across the country to access jobs that benefit themselves and their communities," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas E. Perez. "These grants support our mission to help every American who wants to work find a job that can contribute to economic stability."
The department plans to fund between 10 and 22 grants that will serve more than 53,000 Americans per year.
