South Dakota will receive a $617,040 federal grant from the Department of Labor's On-the-Job Training National Emergency Grants Program, according to a news release from Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D.

The funding comes from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and will be used to jump start the re-employment of workers through on-the-job training.

Employers participating in this program receive a reimbursement to partially offset the wage rate and cost of providing the training.

For more information about the grant, go to www.doleta.gov/layoff/Job_Training.cfm.

    A quick glance at the Federal UI Trust Fund Loans shows SD isn’t listed anymore. Either SD was inadvertently left off or somehow the state paid back the $24,027,178.42.

    For someone who rides pretty much on his ability to bring home the bacon from the bottomless federal pork barrel, $.75 per capita for each South Dakotan is not a whole lot to crow about.
