ALBANY — An $18 million federal grant has been awarded to New York that will continue reemployment services for individuals receiving Unemployment Insurance benefits. The grant – the highest award in the nation – comes from the U.S. Department of Labor as part of its Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment initiative.

This funding builds upon a grant for $10.3 million awarded in 2012, an $11 million grant in 2013, and an $18 million grant in 2014, which combined helped 178,788 unemployed New Yorkers. This year’s grant was increased based on the State’s performance and is anticipated to help more than 95,000 New Yorkers. Western New York is slated to receive $1.8 million of the grant.

"As New York's economy continues to rebound, this state has developed an effective, proven model to match those in need of work with employers looking to grow and thrive in the Empire State," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. "This funding will help continue these efforts and ensure that those who need employment have the resources available to them to do so."

New York State Department of Labor career counselors work with Unemployment Insurance recipients assigned to the program as part of an aggressive agenda that includes three mandatory one-on-one meetings, a work search plan, training assessment, and referrals to additional reemployment services.

“Our primary focus is jobs, jobs, jobs and ensuring unemployed New Yorkers have the skills, know-how, and guidance to navigate an ever-changing job market,” said Acting State Labor Commissioner Mario J. Musolino. “The best news we can hear from an unemployed New Yorker is that they no longer need Unemployment Insurance because they landed a new job. And we hear this across the State every day.”

  1. Pure propaganda from the government. I have personally been to Albany and lobied many elected officials, unless they were "busy", then I was talking to an office puppet. The attitude is disgusting on their thoughts of jobs and WAGES of the employed in NY. They care less about jobs being exported and will throw some bones to "train" workers in the U.S for NEW job opportunities that are supposed to be coming...All the while, they are secure in their health and medical insurances which are better than most of us could afford. What is going to happen when the minimum wage goes to am unrealistic wage? EVERY EMPLOYEE CURRENTLY EMPLOYED BY A BUSINESS WILL GET A HUGE RAISE TO STAY ABOVE THE NEW HIRE.......Small businessman loses.......
