Montpelier, Vermont (AP) June 2010

An Abenaki Indian group has won a $78,120 federal grant to support job training and placement services.

The money, from the U.S. Department of Labor, will go to the Abenaki Self-Help Association/NH Indian Council in Vermont.

It’s part of $67 million in funds to 256 organizations under the Workforce Investment Act Indian and Native American Program.

The grant was announced by U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who says the money is intended to help American Indians, Alaska natives and native Hawaiian communities.
