March 15, 2021 Group Watch: Grant Will Help Alabama Workers

The National Governors Association (NGA) has awarded Alabama a $100,000 Workforce Innovation Network and Workforce Innovation Fund grant to develop innovative policies for reskilling Alabamians who have been displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Governor Ivey, the goal is to provide displaced workers with all the resources needed to get back on track and build a better future. The Alabama Skills-Based Recovery Initiative is a key element of the state’s COVID-19 workforce recovery efforts. Between March 21, 2020 and January 30, 2021, more than 950,000 Alabamians filed an initial unemployment claim, signaling a critical need for assistance. This initiative will also offer technical assistance to employers for developing and deploying skills-based job descriptions that will allow companies to create customized job descriptions for their firms.
