U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (OH-9) March 30 announced an $8.34 million National Emergency Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. The grant will be used to serve dislocated workers at the Chrysler North Assembly plant in Toledo as well as 14 other automobile and truck assembly plants and parts suppliers in Ohio, according to a news release.
“During these tough times, workers need a wide variety of services,” said Congresswoman Kaptur in the release. She said the grant will be used to provide access to the full array of services through the state of Ohio, including counseling, case management, job search and job placement.
The grant to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services will serve workers at the Chrysler plant in Toledo as well as the General Motors plant in Lordstown, the shuttered General Motors plant in Moraine near Dayton, plus 12 suppliers companies throughout the state.
