Direct Services Component
This component is required. It is intended to serve participants in the same manner as other NEGs, by providing funding for retraining, reemployment and supportive services, and where applicable, needs-related payments. REI NEGs may serve affected workers from companies that are, or are expected to be, impacted by layoffs within the defined regional economy within one year of the award date of the grant. In their initial application, applicants will be required to estimate the number of workers that will be served within the one year time frame.
