Kentucky Receives Nearly $1.25 Million to Assist Dislocated Workers

beshear wave 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (7/16/13) – Governor Steve Beshear today announced Kentucky has received a $1,240,897 million National Emergency Grant (NEG) to expand training of dislocated workers. The grants will support on-the-job training, customized training, registered apprenticeships and other approaches that connect individuals with employers, with a focus on providing these services to those in long spells of unemployment.
 
“As the economy is still in recovery, many people still face barriers in returning to work,” said Gov. Beshear. “These funds will strengthen the capacity of Kentucky’s workforce development system to deliver critical work-based learning and training to hundreds of unemployed Kentuckians.”
 
States were invited to apply for the one-time funding in May and were asked to prioritize training efforts on workers who have been unemployed for 27 weeks or longer. States were also encouraged to provide services to workers who are likely to soon exhaust their unemployment insurance benefits.
 
Dislocated workers often have lost their jobs through no fault of their own, such as when layoffs result from the permanent closure of an office or plant. The funding is being provided in recognition of a high number of long-term unemployed individuals and the continuing negative impacts of widespread, small layoffs across the country.
 
National Emergency Grants (NEG) are part of the U.S. secretary of labor’s discretionary fund and are awarded based on a state’s ability to meet specific guidelines. NEG funding is administered by the Kentucky Department of Workforce Investment’s Office of Employment and Training in the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
