Support and transition programs
A transition fund will support displaced workers, self-employed and small contractors, and everyone else whose livelihoods will be affected. The first of these supports are available now.
Emergency funding can cover basic needs after you’re laid off and before other benefits are available.
Programs and services are available to help you find a new job or get retrained.
