(Best Syndication News) - The US Department of Labor (DOL) announced today the distribution of $48.7 million to help aid re-employment and unemployment insurance eligibility assessments in 37 states and the District of Columbia. California's Employment Development Department will receive $2,144,845.

The funding is aimed at speeding up the unemployed workers return into the workplace. They also want to conduct in-person assessments in One-Stop Career Centers to determine if the person is eligible for unemployment insurance compensation.

By keeping contact with the unemployed worker, the One-Stop Career Centers might better be able to offer tools that can help them become hired again.

Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis said in a statement that these grants are being given out to make sure that the unemployed have the help to get employed again by offering “individualized tools.” Solis added that the eligibility reviews would also be used to make sure that honest unemployment payments are going out.

The eligibility review process will be conducted in-person. The unemployment government officials will supply information about the labor market in the area. They will also help develop an individualized re-employment plan for the unemployed person. If relevant, information for re-employment services, training will also be given to the unemployed person during the interview.
