UC Navigator Grant
The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) announces the availability of $2.5 million in grant funding for community-based organizations that share the Wolf Administration's goal of helping Pennsylvania workers learn about, apply for and -- if eligible -- receive Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits. The funding, awarded to Pennsylvania through a competitive federal grant process in June, will also support L&I's efforts to deliver timely UC benefits to workers, especially individuals in groups that are historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.
Funds awarded to community organizations may be used for outreach and education (classes, workshops, seminars), educational equipment, staffing, training, and vendor costs (translation services, print/mail).
