Uncle Sam Awards $6.1M BRAC Grant to Texas

About 1,450 workers affected by BRAC realignments in Texas will benefit from retraining and re-employment services as the result of a $6.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor announced this week. The funds will cover dislocated workers as well as military spouses. A little more than $3 million of the National Emergency Grant will be released now, with additional funding to be made available as the state demonstrates a continued need for assistance, according to a statement from the Labor Department.

The grant will be awarded to the Texas Workforce Commission, and operated by the following workforce development boards — Alamo, Central Texas, North East Texas and Upper Rio Grande. Realignments at the military installations covered under this grant began in 2007 and will continue through Sept. 15.
