Workforce Grant Helps Local Communities Recover
The strong partnership between workforce development and local municipalities and humanitarian
entities, such as the Southeast Texas Food Bank, has allowed for an effective and proven response
to the recovery process throughout the Southeast Texas region. With the receipt of approximately $2.2 million dollars in National Dislocated Worker (NDW) grant funds, the Board once again joined local cities, counties, and other municipalities in recovery and humanitarian efforts for COVID-19 and Hurricane Laura, just one of several natural disasters that impacted our area in 2020.
NDW grants are supplemental resources allocated to areas in response to major events that
severely impact the infrastructure and overwhelm the economic resources available to
overcome the effects of the event. The COVID-19 National Dislocated Worker grant allowed
the Board to assist local city, county, and regional emergency response consortiums to
fill temporary positions for skilled, experienced workers. Positions filled with the
assistance of NDW grants funding include Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), Registered Nurse
(RN), Nurses Assistant (C.N.A.), Contact Tracer, Disease Investigator, Data Entry Clerk,
Custodian, and Sanitizer positions.
