Federal labor officials say another $4.3 million is heading into West Virginia to help out-of-work coal miners.

A U.S. Department of Labor news release Tuesday says the National Dislocated Worker Grant money will go to WorkForce West Virginia.

The release says West Virginia has previously received $10.7 million combined since 2012 through the grant program.

It says the money will help continue services for 1,700 West Virginia participants already enrolled in the reemployment and training services, in addition to about 300 more displaced coal miners.
