CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia group that helps retrain coal miners who were laid off is receiving an $800,000 federal grant.

U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito announced the grant Thursday for the Coalfield Development Corporation’s factory in Wayne.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families will help expand the group’s community job training programs and social services.
