Disaster Dislocated Worker Grants are discretionary funds issued by the U.S. Department of Labor as authorized by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

These grants permit temporary workers to provide humanitarian assistance for disaster victims and help with demolition, deconstruction, cleaning, repair, and re-construction of public structures, facilities, waterways, and lands within the disaster area.

Local Area Workforce Investment Boards can apply for funding from ODJFS if their counties are included in the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) declaration. Areas may serve as project operators, pass funds to counties to operate the project, or procure contractors to perform the clean-up activities as per federal, state, and local policies.      

There are no disaster DWG's operating in Ohio.
