The state of Kentucky has received a National Emergency Grant to help train dislocated workers.

The $1,240,897 will be used to fund on-the-job training, customized training, apprenticeships, and other help to people dealing with unemployment.

"As the economy is still in recovery, many people still face barriers in returning to work," said Gov. Beshear. "These funds will strengthen the capacity of Kentucky's workforce development system to deliver critical work-based learning and training to hundreds of unemployed Kentuckians."

Kentucky is just one state that applied in May for the one-time grant from the U.S. secretary of labor's discretionary fund that is to be used to help workers who have been unemployed for 27 weeks or longer.

The money is also to be used to provide services to workers who are likely to exhaust their unemployment insurance benefits.

Dislocated workers are usually the result of layoffs caused by the permanent closure of the place of business.

This grant was set aside to help those people.
