NMDWS, Local Officials, and State Legislators to hold press conference on the start of payment applications from the ETA Displaced Worker Assistance Fund

The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions will host a press conference at San Juan County McGee Park in Farmington on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. to announce the Energy Transition Act (ETA) Displaced Worker Assistance Fund of over $12 million is ready to be made available as direct assistance to those affected by the closure of the San Juan Generation Station and adjacent coal mine.

Workforce Solutions prepares to assist dislocated workers who qualify for assistance under the Energy Transition Act

On March 30, 2023, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law House Bill 449, expanding the eligibility for funding to help displaced electricity facility workers. This bill, sponsored by Representatives Anthony Allison, Mark Duncan, T. Ryan Lane, and Rod Montoya will assist more than 350 identified displaced workers who were affected by the closure of the San Juan Generating Station and adjacent coal mine in San Juan County, New Mexico. The Department of Workforce Solutions (DWS) oversees the $12 million Displaced Worker Assistance Fund and will begin a plan to disburse funds to eligible workers this spring.
