Grants of up to $50,000 to New Jersey municipal and County libraries and library systems (offering services at multiple libraries in their system) to be part of a new program to assist job seekers. On January 5 a technical assistance workshop will be held. Libraries will work in partnership with the State library to distribute job search information and assist job seekers in using the Career Connections digital platform on the Jobs4Jersey website to connect them to jobs.

Specifically, applicants can apply to participate in a new partnership with the State Library and local libraries (county and municipal) across the state to provide assistance to an even larger number of job seekers.

This initiative will provide grants to twenty-six libraries across the state, to be selected competitively, that will serve as access points for State workforce services. The libraries will distribute job search information and will assist job seekers in using the Career Connections digital platform on the Jobs4Jersey website to connect them to jobs.

The Department will provide training and support to library staff so that they can effectively help their local residents. Additionally, the State Library will receive a grant to assist in the implementation of this initiative.
