The Disaster Recovery National Dislocated Worker Grant will allow participants to continue disaster-relief clean-up efforts resulting from Typhoons Mangkhut and Yutu, which occurred in September and October last year.

The funding will also provide employment and training services.

The Dislocated Worker Grants provide funding assistance in response to large, unexpected economic events that cause significant job losses.
