SPRING HILL, Tenn. – The U.S. Department of Labor announced a grant on Thursday that will assist the hundreds of workers that were affected by the layoffs at the General Motors Spring Hill Assembly Plant.

The grant in the amount of more than eight million dollars will provide relief to the nearly 1,500 workers affected by the layoffs.

“The Labor Department is focused on getting Americans back to work.  Our commitment to that goal includes providing short-term support for those who have lost jobs through no fault of their own, including many workers in auto communities across America,” said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis in a release.

Of the more than eight million dollars announced on Thursday, more than four million dollars will be released initially.

Additional funding up to the amount approved will be made available as the state of Tennessee demonstrates a continued need for assistance.
