In CareerSource Escarosa’s August Newsletter, the Disaster Relief Team is pictured on the front page with a write up about the work they are doing in the area. We anticipate an extension from the feds for completing the work related to Hurricane Sally until January 2023.
Please let us know if you have any ideas about a partnership that will put ready to work unsheltered individuals in a place for success with a temporary employment opportunity. The Disaster Recovery Grant also pays for safety boots, PPE, and tools needed. Funds are also available to provide training for individuals to enter high wage, high skill, and high demand occupations.
An individual eligible to receive services through a Disaster Recovery DWG must be one of the following, per 20 CFR 687.170(b):
- temporarily or permanently laid off as a consequence of the disaster;
- a dislocated worker as defined at 29 U.S.C. 3102(3)(15);
- a long-term unemployed worker; or
- a self-employed individual who became unemployed or significantly underemployed as a result of the disaster or emergency.
Ideas are welcome!
