Rapid Response (RR) services are implemented in partnership with local American Job Centers. The RR team responds to layoffs and plant closings by quickly coordinating services and providing assistance to companies and their affected workers. RR can provide customized on-site services, accommodate work schedules, and assist companies and workers for transitions associated with job loss. The team works with employers and employee representatives to effectively maximize public-private partnerships and resources while reducing disruptions linked to job loss.
The District of Columbia's Dislocated Worker (WIOA), which includes the Rapid Response program, is funded by a $10,070,193.00 grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Length of Program: Year-Round
