CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The state of Wyoming has been awarded up to $2 million in federal funds to retrain workers in the northeast part of the state who lost their jobs in the coal industry.

The money can be used to assist those who worked directly for coal companies or indirectly in manufacturing and transportation businesses associated with coal.

Workers in Campbell, Converse, Crook, Johnson, Niobrara, Sheridan and Weston counties are eligible.

Eligible individuals can receive up to $6,500 toward the cost of a retraining program.

Resources and information about the program are available at state Department of Workforce Services centers.
