HARTFORD, Conn. – A $6.7 million U.S. Department of Labor grant announced Monday by U.S. Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy and Rep. Elizabeth Esty will help unemployed residents find work in the healthcare and information technology fields.

The grant will provide intensive training and professional development for 255 long-term unemployed state residents and advanced training for 55 workers already employed at health care facilities in north-central Connecticut.

“The reality is that with this new healthcare law there are a lot of new jobs available,” Murphy said. “Healthcare information technology can’t be implemented without smart people to do it, so that’s what this training program will provide.”
