Most services for dislocated workers will be provided through the American Job Center (AJC) Network, also known as the one-stop career center system. Basic career services are available to all job seekers and include labor exchange services, labor market information, job listings, and information on partner programs. Training and supportive services, such as child care and needs related payments, are made available to individuals after an interview, assessment or evaluation determines that the individual requires training to obtain employment. In addition, Governors may reserve WIOA Dislocated Worker funds for statewide activities and rapid response – efforts to respond quickly to layoffs and plant closures through aid to the affected workers and their companies. The more flexible nature of these funds could make them a powerful tool to help eligible workers move into infrastructure jobs through job matching, training and other services.
