Are you part of
a layoff project?
We provide assistance to workers laid off through no fault of their own due to a plant closing, downsizing, or a mass layoff involving 50 or more workers.
The Minnesota Department of Employment & Economic Development sets up a special grant for workers in mass layoff situations. For more information on a specific project, click on the respective project name from the list provided on this page.
We also provide assistance to those laid off from smaller layoff events (less than 50) with a special grant from the State. The same benefits are available to this population as the mass layoff grants. Call (612) 676-3710 to determine your eligibility.
