Last week, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced that Los Angeles County will receive state funding to assist local workers and businesses during this crisis. The funding will be used to provide employment, training, and other supportive services to displaced workers, as well as rapid response and layoff aversion services to small and mid-sized businesses.
The Los Angeles County Department of Workforce Development, Aging and Community Services (WDACS) will launch this program, the Employer Assistance Grant Fund, on April 8, 2020 at 8 a.m.
There is a webinar today, April 7, to provide guidance to businesses on the application process. Applications will be processed on a first-come-first-served basis, and they will close once 150 applications are received after applications open on Wednesday, April 8 at 8 a.m.
