Trade and Economic Transition (TET) DWGs

In August 2018, ETA announced the availability of up to $100 million for Trade and Economic Transition (TET) National Dislocated Worker Grants (DWG), with funding amounts of up to $8 million for each award. These DWG grants are offered under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) National Dislocated Worker Grant program, authorized under Section 170 of WIOA and administered according to 20 CFR part 687. This grant will enable successful applicants to address ongoing or emerging workforce and economic challenges by providing training and career services to dislocated workers seeking reentry into the workforce, and increasing their skill levels to become competitive for growing or high-demand employment opportunities. Available funds for this grant could be reduced by other, unforeseen DWG funding needs, such as natural disasters and national emergencies, including national health emergencies such as the opioid crisis.
