Awarded to the Idaho Department of Labor, this grant will provide assistance to the workers in conjunction with the services they will receive as a result of their eligibility for Trade Adjustment Assistance benefits. This grant, along with services available through the TAA program, will be used to provide the affected workers with the training and supportive services they need to successfully find employment.
