The U.S. Department of Labor said it is awarding an $807,000 grant to help workers affected by the closing of the 556 MW Kewaunee nuclear plant in Wisconsin, according to the Associated Press.
The grant was reportedly awarded to the state Department of Workforce Development. It will help workers and eligible displaced homemakers with career and skill assessments, job search assistance, support services and training, the article said.
Dominion Resources (NYSE: D) announced in May that it was shutting down the plant after the company was unable to find a buyer for it.
