Award Description: The Dislocated Worker-National Emergency Grant (NEG) program serves laid-off workers and the businesses that hire them. Under Recovery Act, Minnesota gives priority to those individuals who want to receive credentialed training for high-growth/high-demand occupations with veterans being given additional priority service. When a layoff/closing occurs or may occur, the Dislocated Worker Rapid Response team contacts the business to assess the situation and to meet with the workers to inform them of available services. Program participants receive assessment, testing, job counseling, job-search assistance, and related services. Training is also available, but not all dislocated workers receive training services. Workers who do not have easily transferable skills and are unlikely to find employment in the same industry receive priority in the scope of services for which they qualify.
