CHARLES CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The Department of Labor has announced a $441,000 grant to assist Iowa workers who were affected by the closing of Winnebago Industries manufacturing facility in Charles City. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training Brent Orrell says the grant will provide important assistance to workers as they search for new jobs.
The grant, which was awarded to Iowa Workforce Development, will be operated by the North Iowa Area Community College.
The grant will help provide workers of the Charles City manufacturing facility with full access to dislocated worker services.
Winnebago announced it would be closing its Charles City manufacturing plant in June. Its workers were laid off on August 1.
