National Emergency Grants

U.S. Department of Labor > National Emergency Grants


Program Description:

National Emergency Grants (NEG) are awards given by the Department of Labor that temporarily expand service capacity at the State and local levels through time-limited funding assistance in response to significant dislocation events. Significant events are those that create a sudden need for assistance that cannot reasonably be expected to be accommodated within the ongoing operations of the formula-funded Dislocated Worker program, including the resources reserved at the State level.


General Program Requirements:

Individuals who are eligible for assistance vary by type of NEG project. The general categories of eligible individuals are:

  • A dislocated worker under Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Section 101;
  • Civilian employee of the Department of Defense or the Department of Energy employed at a military installation that is being closed, or that will undergo realignment, within the next 24 months;
  • An individual who is employed in a non-managerial position with a Department of Defense contractor, who is determined to be at risk of termination from employment as a result of reductions in defense expenditures, and whose employer is converting operations from defense to non--defense applications in order to prevent worker layoffs;
  • A member of the Armed Force;
  • For Disaster Projects, an individual who is temporarily or permanently laid off as a consequence of a disaster event qualifying for public assistance through a FEMA declaration;
  • For Disaster Projects, an individual who is long-term unemployed, as defined by the state;
  • For Trade-WIA Dual Enrollment Projects, an individual covered by a certification under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Reform Act of 2002 who also qualifies as an eligible dislocated worker under the Workforce Investment Act, and is co-enrolled/registered in both trade and WIA; or
