More than 2,000 employees from the Cargill Plant in Plainview learned more information on a grant aimed at helping them find new jobs Friday.

The U.S. Labor Department awarded the Texas Workforce Commission a national emergency grant to help with job re-training costs for those laid-off from Cargill.

Martin Aguirre with South Plains Workforce Solutions said the organization will hold a meeting next month to explain the new options for ex-Cargill workers.

"There's a list of training institutions that we're going to invite to join us so that they can answer questions about the course work and so forth," Aguirre said, "because it is a grant for re-employment purposes but it's re-employment through different training."

Aguirre said the grant money will cover some training support costs ant tuition and books.

The informational meeting will be held Thursday, July 11 at 9:30 a.m. at the Ollie Liner Center in Plainview.
