SALT LAKE CITY -- The U.S. Labor Department on Tuesday awarded more than a half a million dollars in grants for job training and placement programs for Native Americans in Utah.

The Deseret News reports that total includes $174,558 to the Ute Tribe and $349,375 to the Indian Training & Education Center in West Valley City.

Most of the money will provide employment and training for Native Americans ages 14 and older. Some money will also be set aside specifically to help 14- to 21-year-olds find summer or permanent work.

The Utah money is among $67 million awarded to 256 organizations nationwide.
