State Will Offer Individualized Reemployment Services to Thousands of Unemployed Workers

EconomyThe Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development has received grants totaling $462,435 from the U.S. Department of Labor to expand statewide reemployment services to Unemployment Insurance claimants through December 2016. Services will focus on two groups of unemployed workers: Unemployment Insurance claimants most likely to exhaust benefits and all recently-separated military personnel. These two groups of job seekers stand to benefit extensively from the highly-individualized Reemployment Services provided through Job Centers in Alaska’s most populated communities.

“These grants significantly expand our resources to help Alaska’s unemployed workers and transitioning military service members,” said Labor Commissioner Heidi Drygas. “Our staff will be able to provide targeted services to help them gain meaningful employment as quickly as possible.”


Individuals seeking more information about services available should contact the nearest Alaska Job Center:

This is HUGE news for the Alaskan economy, if this program can put thousands of unemployed people back to work. I hope it can, and I like the opportunities for Veterans.
