Funding Available to Assist with Rent and Utility Payments for Individuals That Have Been Impacted By COVID-19

Sonora, CA...In May 2020, Mother Lode Job Training (MLJT) was awarded a grant to establish services that will support workers affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding was provided in accordance with the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and administered by the EDD and the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency.

This grant has been extended through December 2020. Funding from the grant will help deliver support services to individuals whose jobs have been impacted by COVID-19 by providing up to $800 per individual for financial assistance with rent, utilities (telephone, internet, electric, gas, water, sewer and garbage), childcare, transportation and equipment necessary to telework, such as computers and software.

“Mother Lode Job Training is excited for this opportunity to help our community. This opportunity won’t last long so please don’t delay!” said Executive Director Dave Thoeny.

Individuals who are interested in receiving assistance or have questions about eligibility should contact our main office at (209) 533-3396 or visit to find their nearest job center. Mother Lode Job Training currently has three available grants to assist workers that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To view these grants and eligibility, visit

Since 1983, Mother Lode Job Training has been providing no-cost services for job seekers and employers through one-stop job centers located in Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa and Tuolumne counties.
