The funding will help provide supportive services for jobseekers enrolled in the agency’s various workforce assistance programs. Eligible jobseekers will be eligible for up to $800 in financial support for:

  • Housing assistance
  • Utility assistance
  • Telework equipment and internet access
  • Childcare assistance
  • Transportation assistance

Jobseekers who suffered a permanent job loss due to economic impacts of COVID-19 will be prioritized for assistance.

In addition to supportive services, jobseekers enrolled in the program will receive comprehensive workforce services which include: career coaching, paid training, on the job training and job placement. Services are offered in a variety of formats such as internet, email and telephone to facilitate remote access.
