9.2 Rapid Response Program Funding | 9.2.2 State to Local WDB's Rapid Response Grants

9.2.2 State to Local WDB's Rapid Response Grants

Effective date: July 1, 2022

Each program year, DWD-DET issues grants to the local WDBs to support the administration of the designated local Rapid Response teams and the provision of required Rapid Response activities. The amount reserved for these Rapid Response grants is subject to change based on funding availability and anticipated demand for that year. The three distinct Rapid Response grants DWD-DET issues are as follows:

  1. Rapid Response Annual Allotment Grants;
  2. Rapid Response Dislocation Grants; and
  3. Rapid Response Additional Assistance Grants.

An annual allotment grant is formula allocated and the two remaining grants are available upon request from the WDBs.

Based on funding availability, each local WDB receives a Rapid Response Annual Allotment Grant annually based on a formula determined by DWD-DET. Local WDBs may apply for Additional Assistance and Dislocation Grants at any time. Funds for Additional Assistance and Dislocation grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. DWD-DET rounds grant amounts to the nearest dollar.
