Hurricane Harvey Relief Initiative Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend (WFSCB) continues to deliver needed workforce services throughout the Coastal Bend region to communities still impacted by Hurricane Harvey. These relief jobs will end on September 30, 2019. Job seekers and self-employed workers may also qualify for training to prepare them for available positions. Short-term training is also available. Although we have made progress, WFSCB knows that some of our residents are out of work and still need some help putting their lives back together. Some of the relief employment opportunities that are currently available include jobs such as                                                                                                  which are just a few of the occupations needed to help rebuild communities across the Coastal Bend. To date, WFSCB has placed 110 relief workers in jobs that were created as a direct result of Hurricane Harvey and are recruiting for another 62 open positions that are spread throughout the six impacted counties including Aransas, Bee, Kleberg, Nueces, Refugio and San Patricio. 110 RELIEF EMPLOYMENT PLACEMENTS �1,202,534.76 RELIEF EMPLOYMENT WAGES 17 WFSCB Annual Report 2018 �105,674.00 SUPPORT SERVICE FUNDS ISSUED TO PARTICIPANTS 424 �27,735.40 PARTICIPANTS SERVED TRAINING SERVICES (OSHA)
