Workforce Investment Act (WIA) National Emergency Grants

The purpose of the National Emergency Grant program is to temporarily expand service capacity at the state and local levels by providing time-limited funding assistance in response to significant dislocation events.

Significant events are those that create a sudden need for assistance that cannot
reasonably be expected to be accommodated within the on-going operations of the formula-funded Dislocated Worker program, including the discretionary resources reserved at the state level.
