DETROIT (AP) - More than $1.4 million has been awarded to Michigan Works! Southeast to train workers at 27 companies in the region.

Michigan Works! Southeast says the funding is from the Michigan Talent Investment agency and the grant awards are part of the state’s Skilled Trades Training Fund.

The fund provides competitive awards for training that aims to enhance talent, productivity and employee retention while increasing the quality and competitiveness of Michigan’s businesses.
