A new state law takes effect on Labor Day that makes more unemployed workers eligible for the Training Benefits Program.
Previously, the program was available only for dislocated workers who were deemed unlikely to find work in their past occupation.
The new law opens the program to unemployed workers who are disabled, low-income, members of the Washington National Guard, or recently discharged from the military.
The workers also must meet the usual eligibility requirements for unemployment insurance.
You can apply online for this new program.
