Dept. of Labor awards funds for transitioning JBLM personnel

Feb 7, 2017 - 05:26 PM

A supplemental award of $2 million has been granted to provide reemployment services to transitioning personnel at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The funds are being given as part of a National Dislocated Worker Grant, which provides funding assistance to temporarily expand employment services programs in response to large, unexpected economic events.

The monetary award is part of a total $10,086,385 given by the United States Department of Labor to the Pacific Mountain Workforce Consortium. An initial $2,888,266 was initially released in December 2013 to provide reemployment and training services to about 900 transitioning military service members at the base, with an additional $2,698,119 approved in March 2015. Later that year, supplemental funding of $2.5 million was awarded to continue those services, including the addition of 450 transitioning service members to the project.

This supplemental award of $2 million will allow for reemployment and training services for 750 new participants, which will bring the total number of participants since the initial 2013 award to about 2,100.
