Representatives of the affected workers then select a certified service provider through a competitive proposal process.To see a list of the special projects HIRED has been selected to operate, including current dislocated worker programs, click here.
Formula dislocated worker projects are provided for workers affected by layoffs of less than 50 people.
Dislocated worker programs are supported by the City of Minneapolis, Ramsey County Workforce Solutions, Hennepin County, Dakota County, and the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development using Workforce Investment Act, State Dislocated Worker and other funds.
