Opportunity Title:

2023 QUEST Disaster Recovery National Dislocated Worker Grants Funding Announcement


Department of Labor

Employment and Training Administration

Opportunity Number:



While the public health emergency declaration has been rescinded, the uneven health, employment, and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to create challenges for the nation’s full recovery. Many of the workers most impacted by the resulting economic downturn were employed in the care economy, hospitality, and transportation and logistics sectors. These sectors are dominated by people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, individuals who were formerly incarcerated, women, and lower-wage workers. Furthermore, global supply chain disruptions caused the displacement of workers who would have been eligible for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program services; however, this program is not accepting new participants. These conditions continue the need for 2023 QUEST DWG grants to support pandemic-impacted workers, industries, and communities now and for years to come.Questions regarding this Training and Employment Guidance Letter (TEGL) may be emailed to We encourage prospective applicants and interested parties to use the subscription option to register for future updates provided for this particular funding opportunity.
