National Emergency Grant Awarded to Mississippi to Provide Disaster Related Jobs

JACKSON – The Mississippi Department of Employment Security will provide grant funds to help governments, nonprofits and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians hire workers for cleanup and recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Isaac.

Thursday, the U.S. Department of Labor awarded MDES a $3 million National Emergency Grant to provide funding for these public-service assistance jobs.

“We encourage all of the eligible entities to take advantage of these funds,” MDES Executive Director Mark Henry said. “Governments, nonprofits and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians can apply for work sites. In addition, individuals can apply for these jobs by calling or visiting the nearest WIN Job Center or going online at mdes.ms.gov.”

Those affected by the hurricane are given priority in hiring. These temporary jobs last up to six months or until the worker earns $12,000, whichever comes first. Unemployment insurance may not be collected while working on these jobs.

Workers are eligible who are:

  • Out-of-work due to the hurricane.
  • Currently laid off from work.
  • Long-term unemployed, out of work at least 15 weeks during the past six months.

Jobs include:

  • Debris cleaners.
  • Humanitarian aides.
  • Drivers.
  • Office workers.
  • Social-service aides.
  • Construction workers.
  • Others as needed.

The grant covers 48 counties and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians damaged by Hurricane Isaac. The region declared as disaster areas by the federal government and eligible for public assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency includes the following Counties and Indian Reservation: Adams, Amite, Attala, Carroll, Claiborne, Clarke, Copiah, Covington, Forrest, Franklin, George, Greene, Grenada, Hancock, Harrison, Hinds, Holmes, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Jefferson Davis, Jones, Kemper, Lamar, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Leake, Lincoln, Madison, Marion, Montgomery, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, Pearl River, Perry, Pike, Rankin, Scott, Simpson, Smith, Stone, Walthall, Warren, Wayne, Wilkinson, Winston, Yazoo and the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
