Selected Grant Resources for Workforce

Development and Jobs Training in Response

to COVID-19



June 15, 2020
The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has had a significant impact on the U.S.
workforce. This Insight identifies federal departments and agencies that administer programs to support
workforce development, training, and job readiness initiatives. It focuses on selected programs that state,
local, and tribal governments, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions may use to address
pandemic-related labor market impacts. It does not include workforce or training assistance programs for
individuals (such as scholarships, fellowships, unemployment benefits, or other individual assistance).


Types of Federal Assistance

Many types of federal grant funding are awarded to states as formula grants or block grants. Inturn, the
states (including territories and tribes) make awards to subrecipients to implement the programs' core
objectives. Other types of federal grants (commonly called discretionary or project grants) may be
awarded directly to beneficiaries on a competitive basis.
Federal assistance may also be available in the form of cooperative agreements, technical assistance, or
other types of aid.
For general information on grant resources, see CRS Report RL34012, Resources for Grantseekers.
