Department of Labor Grant to Assist Washington Workers Affected by Layoffs at Boeing
The Department of Labor has announced a $2,205,753 National Emergency Grant to assist about 645 workers affected by layoffs at The Boeing Company in Seattle, Washington.
Awarded to the Washington State Employment Security Department, the grant will be operated by the Workforce Development Council of Snohomish County. Eligible workers will have access to training and a broad range of support services, in conjunction with other services they may receive as a result of their eligibility for Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits. The grant and the TAA program will provide these dislocated workers with re-employment services they need to successfully find jobs in their area.
