Collaboration continues with MT American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Union Council (AFL-CIO) to help serve Layoff Aversion Funds through the Montana Power Grant, and DCC WDCE staff have been involved in outreach with Rosebud County, particularly Colstrip. An additional 23 affected counties have been contacted in an effort to provide education and training opportunities for dislocated workers. Affected workers in Colstrip have participated in EMT Training and enrolled in DCC’s Dawson Software School. The Colstrip community remains in contact with DCC regarding other educational opportunities.
