(ALBANY, N.Y.) -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Thursday that the United States Department of Labor gave New York a $10.3 million grant as part of its Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment initiative, according to published reports.
The federal grant is expected to help unemployed New Yorkers get back to work with state-provided individualized job searches and training services.
"New York's One-Stop Career Centers have helped connect thousands of unemployed New Yorkers with businesses looking to hire," Cuomo said. "This federal grant recognizes the success of our One-Stop Career Centers and that New York State is a leader in helping the unemployed find a job. We will continue to focus on jobs, jobs, jobs, and do all we can to help unemployed New Yorkers get back into the workforce."
New York received the largest grant among the 42 awarded nationwide.
