A new program in the City of Los Angeles aims to provide job training for those who recently laid off work.
The "Getting LA Back 2 Work" program is funded by a National Emergency Grant under the Department of Labor. This grant targets displaced workers from specific public agencies and private companies identified from the Department of Labor. The grant provides qualified displaced workers with up to $7,500 in training and placement support.
The City is partnering with 18 WorkSource Centers located throughout LA. The goal is to identify 2,000 dislocated workers and get them enrolled, trained and placed in jobs by March 31, 2014.
