PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard says Beadle County has been awarded a grant of more than $126,000 for workforce training programs in the Huron area.
Beadle County will work with other organizations to provide manufacturing employees with the skills they need to advance their careers.
Manufacturers in the Huron area will provide training in blueprint reading, forklift operations, math for manufacturing, welding and power tool operations.
The federal government funds the Community Development Block Grant program, and the Governor's Office of Economic Development administers it. Past grants have helped local governments construct or improve community buildings, water systems and sewer systems.
