Rapid Response has been required by and financed under federal workforce legislation since 1988 to ensure that every worker affected by a layoff is given the best opportunity to return to work as soon as possible, and that employers are able to access the skilled workers or other solutions they need.  State workforce agencies are responsible for administering Rapid Response and State staff directly provides services, although funds may be provided to Local Workforce Innovation Areas (LWIAs) to serve dislocated workers.
