The U.S. Department of Labor has awarded a $1 million grant for cleanup and recovery jobs in Mississippi related to Hurricane Isaac.

Acting Labor Secretary Seth D. Harris made the annoucement Thursday in a news release.

Harris says the funding will provide additional assistance for affected communities while creating temporary employment for workers.

This latest increment brings the total awarded to $2 million. Additional funding could be made available if the state demonstrates a continued need.
