logo_color_250.jpgThe Oregon Emergency Jobs Program provides temporary employment opportunities for Oregonians doing meaningful work serving the state’s public service and non-profit agencies. The program, recently proposed by Governor Kulongoski, will be funded by a one-time re-direction of funds from the unemployment insurance trust fund.  This re-direction requires Legislative approval.  The Governor hopes to have approval in June so that jobs can start July 1.  Please check this Web site frequently for updates.

How does the program work?
Any Oregon non-profit, or state, county, or local government entity can apply to offer these jobs, which will pay between $8.40 and $10.00 an hour. All applications for potential projects from public or non-profit organizations will be sent to Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD).  These jobs will address community needs such as safety and prevention, emergency preparedness, human services assistance, and environmental protection and enhancement.

Who may apply for these jobs?
Any unemployed Oregonian is eligible to apply for work through the Oregon Emergency Jobs Program.  Applicants must be registered in iMatchSkills in order to be eligible.  Registration may be done online, or by going to the WorkSource Oregon Center nearest you.
