The Recovery Act provides $200 million for the Dislocated Workers National Reserve. The Recovery Act provides $750 million for a program of competitive grants for worker training and placement in high growth and emerging industry sectors, of which $500 million is designated for research, labor exchange and job training projects that prepare workers for careers in energy efficiency and renewable energy. The Act directs the Secretary of Labor to give priority to projects that prepare workers for careers in the health care sector funded through the remaining $250 million.
