The Ford Motor Company Fund is pledging $1 million to the American Red Cross for efforts including workplace development training for veterans, military members and their families.

The funding announced Thursday by Dearborn-based Ford Motor Co. also will help with disaster relief through the Red Cross Disaster Responder program.

The commitment is for two years. Its support of the American Red Cross is being expanded with 200 Blue Oval Scholarships for nurse assistant training in the Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces program. Training takes place in cities including Detroit, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Tenn., and Louisville, Ky.

The Ford Motor Company Fund is funded by the automaker.
