National Dislocated Worker Grants
Agency: U.S. Department of Labor
Description: Funds support projects that provide employment-related services for dislocated workers. The Department of Labor funds two types of DWGs: Disaster Recovery and Employment Recovery. Employment Recovery DWGs temporarily expand capacity to serve dislocated workers and to meet the increased demand for employment and training services following a qualifying event. Qualifying events include major economic dislocations, such as plant closures, mass layoffs, or higher-than-average demand for employment and training activities for dislocated members of the Armed Forces and their spouses.
