The money will assist 1,300 workers in finding jobs, the governor’s office said in a news release.

Southwest Washington Workforce Development Council will receive $325,000 from the federal program. The council and its WorkSource programs serve Clark, Cowlitz and Wahkiakum counties.

Local workforce development councils will deliver services to the long-term unemployed through local WorkSource facilities. WorkSource is a statewide partnership of state, local and nonprofit agencies offering employment and training services for job seekers and employers.
