WASHINGTON, DC -- $256,696 in National Emergency Grant (NEG) funding has been provided to assist approximately 100 workers impacted by layoffs at Lincoln Paper and Tissue LLC, in Lincoln, Maine. "The Mainers laid-off from Lincoln Paper and Tissue are some of the hardest working men and women in the country. This emergency funding will help those affected by layoffs train for and find meaningful new employment," said Michaud. "My staff and I will continue to stand ready to assist these workers in any way possible."

In December, Lincoln Paper and Tissue announced that it would layoff 200 workers as a result of increased foreign competition. Earlier this year, Michaud announced that workers at the mill had been approved for Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), which also provides a variety of job retraining and placement services.

According to the Department of Labor, National Emergency Grants (NEG) are discretionary awards by the Secretary of Labor that temporarily expand service capacity at the State and local levels through time-limited funding assistance in response to significant dislocation events. Significant events are those that create a sudden need for assistance that cannot reasonably be expected to be accommodated within the ongoing operations of the formula-funded Dislocated Worker program, including the discretionary resources reserved at the State level.
