U.S. Department of Labor awards $112 million for reemployment services
Estimates based on the budgets in the past 10 years show that the program has reduced the use of UI services by approximately one-and-a-half weeks, saving on average $3 for every dollar spent in costs. “As our nation continues to enjoy a period of sustained economic growth, with 14.4 million jobs added in the past 73 months, the U.S. Department of Labor remains focused on modernizing and improving the UI system, and helping those who are still looking for jobs to support themselves and their families,” said Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training Portia Wu. “(These) grant awards will ensure unemployed individuals have a wide array of workforce services available and can continue to be eligible for UI services.” The funds will be used to connect participants with in-person assessments and re-employment services through their local their local American Job Centers including developing an individual re-employment plan; providing relevant and timely labor market information, identifying job skills and employment prospects; and reviewing claimant’s continued eligibility for UI benefits.
