Dislocated worker funding is typically used to help workers in events of mass employment loss. In the United States several grants have been established by the Secretary of Labor known officially as National Dislocated Worker Grants. The grants provide resources for states or other applicants to mitigate job losses caused by large, unexpected layoffs. The grants were established in 2014 by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
The grants have been used for a variety of reasons in the United States since their creation. A common reason is layoffs attributed to aging energy infrastructure such as end-of-life coal power plants or closing coal mines.
