Delegate Gregorio Kilili C. Sablan (Ind-MP) said over the weekend that the CNMI is receiving $1.56 million from the U.S. Department of Labor for training and career services.

Sablan said in his e-kilili newsletter that U.S. Labor’s Employment and Training Administration announced Friday that the grant award will be distributed to the following: $453,848 for youths, $429,597 for adults, and $679,289 for dislocated workers.

Sablan said this support includes counseling, work search assistance, and development of individual employment plans.

He said the youth funds rolled out on April 1, 2022.

Sablan said adult and dislocated worker funds will be available in two separate appropriations: base funds on July 1, 2022, and advance funds on Oct. 1, 2022.

The delegate said the $1.5 million award comes from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
