The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) recently requested $7.35 million in Disaster Relief Employment from the U.S. Department of Labor to help with the state’s recovery efforts following Hurricane Dolly, which barreled through South Texas in July.

The Disaster Relief Employment, which is the first phase of a disaster National Emergency Grant, would fund 475 temporary jobs in Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr and Willacy counties.

The affected local workforce development boards—Workforce Solutions Cameron and Workforce Solutions Lower Rio Grande—will coordinate with local employer partners to help provide food, clothing, shelter and related humanitarian services. TWC will use the federal money to provide disaster unemployment assistance for workers who lost their jobs because of the hurricane.
