WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced nearly $110 million in Trade and Economic Transition Dislocated Worker Grants (DWGs) for state, tribal, and non-profit entities that are working in collaboration with community partners and local Workforce Development Boards to prepare Americans for professions in high-growth employment sectors. These grants will assist in implementing innovative skills instruction and career services for Americans who are seeking reemployment as a result of changes in workforce needs or from economic changes across multiple sectors.
Supported by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014, Dislocated Worker Grants temporarily expand the service capacity of dislocated worker training and employment programs at the state and local levels by providing funding assistance. An "economic transition," as defined in Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) No. 2-18, is a far-reaching economic or workforce trend or event, beyond the operating conditions of one employer, which has caused significant worker dislocations in a stated geographic area.
