PAWTUCKET, R.I.—Rhode Island is closing its career center in Pawtucket because of a decrease in federal funding.

The state Department of Labor and Training said Monday that the netWORKri career center on Main Street will close Sept. 6.

Agency director Charles Fogarty says the decision to close was difficult but reductions in federal funds means there's no longer enough money to operate the center.

Career centers in Providence, Woonsocket, West Warwick and Wakefield will remain open.

In addition, the state will continue to offer workshops at the Pawtucket Public Library focusing on resume writing, interview skills and other tips for job-seekers.

The centers provide unemployed workers with help in finding new jobs.

Employees of the Pawtucket office will be reassigned to one of the other locations.
