ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia is set to receive $717,000 in federal grants for workforce and training programs after the state exceeded its goals for helping unemployed residents find jobs.

The Governor's Office of Workforce Development announced the grants Tuesday, saying Georgia was one of 15 states to receive the funds.

Gov. Nathan Deal says the grants show "Georgia is on the right path to building a strong workforce."

The funds must be used during the next two years. The goals used to determine the grants include how many residents began employment after training and how many stayed employed.
