Department Awards Grant Increment to Continue Aid to Workers in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia Affected by Steel Industry Layoffs

The Department of Labor has announced a $450,777 National Emergency Grant increment to provide re-employment services for about 184 workers affected by layoffs at six RG Steel facilities - four in Ohio and two in West Virginia - along with one supplier, Kinder-Morgan, located in Pennsylvania.

The funding will provide training and support services to eligible workers currently being served by this grant, along with additional workers affected by layoffs resulting from RG Steel's Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Many of the workers receiving services under this grant also are eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance. The grant funds will provide those workers with continued access to supportive services not available through the TAA program, and those workers who are not TAA-eligible will be given access to an array of training and employment-related services.
