— The Maine Department of Education, Department of Labor and State Workforce Investment Board will receive $819,433 in federal funds for meeting adult education and workforce development goals.

The federal Department of Labor gives out the grants based on the performance of statewide adult education and workforce systems from July 2012 to June 2013. Eight states met their goals and will receive grants. Maine officials say the grant will be used to fund partnerships with industries.

Maine officials say the state last qualified for this kind of incentive grant 12 years ago.
