Lawrence County wins grant to train prospective transit workers
The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded Lawrence County Social Services Inc. a $187,850 federal grant to train young adults for transit jobs, the federal agency said Friday.
The department said the New Castle agency will use the money for its Gen Y Transit Workforce Connection program. The grant will pay for about 20 young adults to receive job readiness and pre-employment training to prepare them for careers in the transit industry, the department said.
The department gave out $7 million in related grants nationwide, more than double the $3 million it awarded last year for transit work force training.
