Workforce Assistance Program

County residents who lost employment because of the coronavirus epidemic may receive up to
$800 in job loss benefits thanks to a $252,000 state grant received by the Riverside County
Workforce Development Division.

The funding will help provide supportive services for jobseekers enrolled in the agency’s various
workforce assistance programs. Eligible job seekers will be eligible for up to $800 in financial
support for:

• Housing assistance
• Utility assistance
• Telework equipment and internet access
• Childcare assistance
• Transportation assistance

Jobseekers who suffered a permanent job loss due to economic impacts of COVID-19 will be
prioritized for assistance.

In addition to supportive services, jobseekers enrolled in the program will receive
comprehensive workforce services which include: career coaching, paid training, on the job
training, and job placement. Services are offered in a variety of formats such as the internet, email and telephone to facilitate remote access.
