Grant to help workers laid off from auto plants

Workers laid off from the Toledo Jeep Assembly complex could receive job counseling and placement services through $8.34 million in federal grant funding to be spread among 15 Ohio auto plants and suppliers, U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D., Toledo) said Monday.

It was unclear how much would be available for former workers at the Toledo plant owned by Chrysler LLC. The grant is expected to help 2,428 laid-off workers statewide, including those from General Motor Corp. s Lordstown facility and its closed Moraine plant.

The U.S. Department of Labor will distribute the National Emergency Grant through the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
