Rapid Response

Rapid Response is a Federal program designed to offer high quality services to communities, businesses and individuals who are addressing economic impacts, industry changes and natural disasters that may lead to worker layoffs. 

Rapid Response services are flexible and strategically designed to bridge economic and workforce development.  The program brokers partnerships and tailors solutions for businesses and workers during any stage of the business cycle.  By maximizing resources Rapid Response helps businesses and individuals in transition succeed.    

If layoffs occur, Rapid Response provides a quality alternative to traditional outplacement services, but may also work hand in hand with these programs for best results.  

Rapid Response triggers when a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) notice is filed but also addresses smaller layoffs.
