The U.S. Department of Labor awarded Missouri's Division of Workforce Development (DWD) $2.7 million in National Dislocated Worker Grant funding to assist in clean-up, restoration, and recovery efforts following the historic flooding and severe storms that occurred from April 28 to May 11. Through these grants, the state will provide temporary clean-up jobs to 170 Missourians.
To assist with debris removal and public infrastructure repairs, the state is seeking workers that can perform general labor, operate CDL and non-CDL equipment, and supervise crew members. Temporary disaster relief employment will be offered in the following disaster-declared counties: Butler, Carter, Douglas, Howell, Miller, Oregon, Ozark, Phelps, Pulaski, Reynolds, Ripley, Texas, Washington, Webster, Wright, and St. Genevieve. (Click on map below to see disaster grant counties.)
Priority for these temporary positions will be given to those who are unemployed as a result of the disaster, as well as those who were self-employed, dislocated workers, or long-term unemployed. Those interested in this type of work should contact staff at the Missouri Job Centers in Springfield, West Plains, Rolla, Poplar Bluff, Cape Girardeau, Potosi or Linn Creek for full details. Missouri Job Centers also provide employment related services, including: resume and interviewing assistance, training and skills development.
