The grant, which includes an initial release of $2,475,000, will provide workers with re-employment assistance such as training, assessment, counseling and case management.
Last month, the state was awarded a $16 million Labor Department grant through its Trade Adjustment Assistance program, which is designed to help workers affected by global trade. Those who are certified as TAA-eligible may receive up to two years of income support, a health coverage tax credit, and help with job search and relocation expenses.
Additionally, Michigan auto workers may qualify for a $1.5 million Career Advancement Account demonstration project that the state is operating.
