Rapid Response encompasses strategies and activities for the state or designated entity to respond as quickly as possible following an announcement of a permanent closure, mass layoff, or natural or other disaster which results in mass job loss. Through Rapid Response, the state or designated entity delivers services to enable dislocated workers to transition to new employment as quickly as possible. The purpose of Rapid Response is to promote economic recovery and vitality by developing an ongoing, comprehensive approach to identifying, planning for, or responding to layoffs and dislocations, and preventing or minimizing their impacts on workers, businesses, and communities.
