Power NEGs
In 2015, the White House announced the Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization (POWER) Initiative in an effort to address displacement of energy sector workers and impacted communities that have relied on the coal industry; ETA was one of the federal agencies committing to fund the POWER Initiative. ETA has committed to making available $39 million for POWER DWGs through the National Dislocated Worker Grant (DWG) program, with $20 million committed in Program Year 2015 and an additional $19 million committed for Program Year 2016, which begins July 1, 2016. POWER DWGs may be requested by a state workforce agency in coordination with, and on behalf of, communities or regional economies that have seen significant layoffs of workers in coal mining, coal-fired power plants, and in the manufacturing, transportation or logistics chains of either. POWER DWGs provide not only traditional training and reemployment services for affected workers, but also include a strategic planning component, allowing the grantees to use a portion of the grant funds to align the economic and workforce development strategies in local communities to promote economic diversification and job growth. POWER DWG funds will be available for award between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2018, or until the balance of the $39 million set-aside has been awarded. Eligible applicants may apply at any point during this open period; DWGs are available on a rolling basis to respond to needs that arise, and are not limited to specific application periods.
