Description

The COVID-19 DWGs are a pivotal part of Employment and Training Administration (ETA’s) contribution to supporting economic recovery for job seekers and businesses adversely impacted by the pandemic.  This webinar is part of a series of technical assistance efforts to support implementation of the COVID-19 DWGs, a vital recovery tool to provide support to communities in crisis.  Please join us for a conversation on where we are today and the challenges many faced in operationalizing the grants.  The webinar will focus on the success of three COVID-19 DWG grantees to understand what’s working and why in an effort to offer solutions to other COVID-19 grantees.  We will also hear challenges grantees faced and what solutions were implemented to resolve the challenges.
