Mother Lode Job Training (MLJT) has recently acquired a new grant to help the local workforce with essential monthly bills if they have been laid off work or their hours have been reduced due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
MLJT officials said they would like to share this opportunity with the communities within the four service areas: Mariposa, Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.

People must also fall into one of the following categories: Laid off due to Covid-19; self-quarantined; you are a caregiver for someone who is quarantined; needed to care for children due to school or childcare closure; required to telecommute to work but lack the equipment; at higher risk or live with someone who is at higher risk as defined by California Public Health; individuals who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease.
