Committed to Helping our Community Recover

Aiding individuals affected by a layoff to transition to new employment by providing job search assistance and training opportunities.

Maintaining or Improving Your Wage

Our career planners will work to understand your wage needs and help you identify careers to either maintain or increase your earnings. We will emphasize the use of the H3 website (http://H3.ne.gov) to help you identify, acquire skills, and enter high wage, high-skill, and high-demand (H3) careers in Nebraska. All program activities will be centered on the achievement of this primary goal.

Employment & Training Services

Activities that will support you in securing a stable, good-paying job are listed on our Job Seeker Services page.

Temporary Income Assistance

Our career planners can also assist you in applying for and understanding your unemployment insurance benefits. When participating in a Dislocated Worker Program training activity, your work search requirements may be waived by the Nebraska Department of Labor.

Program Eligibility

18 years old or older

AND any of the following:

Eligibility Documents

Other documents may be required depending on the services being received.

Cost

All services are provided at zero cost to the job seeker and are funded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

Success

We measure success by the achievement of our people, by the jobs they can find, and the quality of life those jobs offer. It is our goal to help you find good employment and keep it or advance.

Laid Off Due to Global Trade?

If you have been laid off due to the impacts of global trade, the Trade Adjustment Assistance Program provides support to help job seekers. It operates much like the Dislocated Worker Program but with enhanced benefits to transition to new employment.

Trade Adjustment Assistance Program Services

Most participants will first be enrolled in the Dislocated Worker Program while the Trade petition is reviewed by the US Department of Labor. (ALL Trade participants are eligible for the Dislocated Worker Program). Participants can leverage funding from both programs and services will be coordinated.
