Free Training If You Are Laid Off Due To Defense Cutbacks

Thousands of communities around the country have felt the fallout of the end of the Cold War. And the fallout has been economic, not nuclear. Base closings mean no jobs – pure and simple. Fortunately, the Defense Conversion Adjustment (DCA) Program provides retraining and other assistance for workers hurt by defense cutbacks. The DCA Program offers retraining and readjustment services tailored to meet each individual participant. Long-term training, including educational and occupational, is encouraged. Those eligible include workers who lose their jobs because of plant closings or mass layoffs due to reduced U.S. defense expenditures or closed military facilities. For more information, contact your state job training office, contact your state Dislocated Worker Contact, or contact Office of Worker Retraining and Adjustment Programs, Employment and Training Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N5426, 200 Constitution Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20210; 202-219-5577; {}.
