The U.S. Department of Labor says Hawaii is in line for nearly $1.8 million in federal grant money to train dislocated workers.

The department says the money for Hawaii is part of $58 million in funding to 30 states for expanded training for dislocated workers to acquire industry-recognized credentials in new careers.

The grants will pay for on-the-job training, customized training, apprenticeships and other means to train workers.

States could apply for the money in May.

The department says states were asked to focus on efforts to train workers unemployed for at least 27 weeks and those who were nearly through their eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits.

Dislocated workers include people out of work because of the closure of an office or a plant.
