FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has received a nearly $1.3 million federal grant aimed at helping the jobless get back in the workforce.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office says the U.S. Department of Labor grant will be used for in-person assessments in local career centers.

Beshear says the grants will help the unemployed get back to work quicker by giving them individualized services.

State Workforce Investment Commissioner Beth Brinly says the goal is to ensure that people have access to a full array of employment and training services through the career centers.

Career Centers help people prepare for and obtain jobs and assist employers in locating and selecting the best-qualified workers for their job openings.
