Job-Driven Grants for the Long Term Unemployed

On June 26, the Department of Labor awarded nearly $155 million in grants to 32 states, Puerto Rico and the Cherokee tribal nation through the Job-Driven National Emergency Grant competition. These grants will provide work-based learning such as on-the-job training, as well as career coaching, networking, and job placement assistance for dislocated worker with a focus on the long-term unemployed. At least one state grantee - New Hampshire - will use grant funds to support job clubs. From New Hampshire's project summary:

"The project will also incorporate a professionally facilitated Job Club to encourage information sharing, networking, and peer support activities."
