Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Two job-training programs for women and minorities in West Virginia will receive federal stimulus money.

U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller said Monday the West Virginia Step-Up for Women program will receive $292,000.

The program provides training at sites in Martinsburg, Morgantown and Charleston for entry-level positions in the construction industry and registered apprenticeships.

Rockefeller also says the West Virginia State Community and Technical College in Institute will receive more than $198,000.

The funding is being provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
