DOL SealThe U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau is seeking applications for the Re-Employment Support and Training for the Opioid Related Epidemic (RESTORE) Grant Program, which provides funding to directly address the employment needs of women affected by the opioid crisis and combat its impact in some of the hardest hit areas of the country. Applicants will establish and/or build on cooperative relationships among service providers and key stakeholders from community-based and nonprofit organizations, state and federal workforce development systems, public health and substance addiction treatment professionals, and other human services and support service entities, in order to train and employ women workers who have been affected by the opioid crisis.

Recognizing that some women impacted by the opioid crisis may have had exposure to the criminal justice system, applicants are encouraged to work with partner organizations experienced in providing services for reentry, such as those funded by member agencies of the Federal Interagency Council on Crime Prevention and Improving Reentry. 

Learn more and apply. Applications are due by 4 p.m. ET on August 23.
