Rapid Response

Program Overview

Rapid Response (RR) services are performed by states and local workforce development agencies in partnership with local American Job Centers. The RR team responds to layoffs and plant closings by quickly coordinating services and providing immediate aid to companies and their affected workers. The team will work with employers and employee representatives to quickly maximize public and private resources to minimize disruptions associated with job loss. RR can provide customized services on-site at an affected company, accommodate work schedules and assist companies and workers through transitions associated with job loss.
