Idaho's state Department of Labor has been awarded a $3.5 million federal grant for job training aimed at moving the long-term unemployed into high-demand jobs, through on-the-job training, apprenticeships, career counseling and more. Idaho is one of 32 states receiving grants under the U.S. Department of Labor's Job-Driven National Emergency Grant program; among those targeted for help are immigrants and refugees in southwestern Idaho. The grant also will benefit dislocated and laid-off workers; you can read the department's full announcement here
