April 29, 2010 National Emergency Grant for Utah
Dear Utah Delegation:
Here is information about a National Emergency Grant (NEG) award to to serve about 200 workers affected by layoffs at ATK Launch Systems (ATK), located in Corinne.
Description of NEG
- The Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration will award the State of Utah up to $1,234,762 with $616,165 released initially. A petition for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) has been filed on behalf of the workers from ATK and is currently under review. If the petition for these workers is approved, this project will provide these dislocated workers with access to “wrap-around” and supportive services that are not available through the TAA program. If the TAA petition is denied, the full array of employment-related services allowable under a NEG will be available to the workers.
- The geographic areas covered by this funding are: The counties of Box Elder, Davis, Morgan, Salt Lake, Tooele, and Weber
- Project Operator: Utah Department of Workforce Services
Let me know if you need more information. Feel free to contact Connie Laws with the Utah Department of Workforce Services at (801) 526-9955, if you have specific questions about how the funds will be distributed.
