Federal worker grant will help military service members transition to civilian jobs

Military service members in Maryland can get training for civilian jobs with help of $4.3 million grant.

Military service members in Maryland will have access to training for civilian jobs through a $4.3 million Labor Department grant awarded Tuesday to the Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corp.

The National Dislocated Worker Grant will go toward re-employment services for about 730 service members and spouses stationed mostly at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Fort Meade, Joint Base Andrews and Patuxent River Naval Air Station.

The grants, funded through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, are designed to help states and local workforce investment boards re-employ laid-off workers quickly through occupational training.
