Purpose

BACK

National Emergency Grants (NEG) are discretionary awards by the Secretary of Labor that temporarily expand service capacity at the State and local levels through time-limited funding assistance in response to significant dislocation events. Significant events are those that create a sudden need for assistance that cannot reasonably be expected to be accommodated within the ongoing operations of the formula-funded Dislocated Worker program, including the discretionary resources reserved at the State level.

Eligible Events for NEG funding include: Regular, Trade-WIA Dual Enrollment, Disaster, Trade-Health Coverage Infrastructure.
