UNDATED -- Oklahoma will receive $4.1 million to assist workers impacted by foreign trade, the U.S. Department of Labor announced Wednesday.

The funds are part of a $447 million Trade Adjustment Assistance program that will go to states for workers who lose their jobs due to outsourcing and foreign trade. The money will be allocated in 2010.

"The funding announced today underscores the Labor Department's continued commitment to helping workers who are adversely impacted by trade by ensuring they have the help they need to re-enter the workforce and secure family supporting wages," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. 

The TAA program seeks to provide workers with the opportunity to obtain the skills, resources and support needed to become re-employed, according to the Labor Department's press release.  These funds will be used to provide career training and employment and case management services, and to pay for associated administrative costs. 

 States will receive funds according to these allocations once the department receives its fiscal year 2010 congressional appropriation.
