NYS REA Grant Design


FY 2010 REA Grant Design

  • Targets Individuals profiled 1 to 50: Least likely to exhaust/most ready to return to work

  • Random select 60% as REA participants from REOS download

  • REA participation thru duration of Regular UI claim (REA can not serve EUC/EB claimants)


FY 2010 REA Grant Design

Federal REA Grant Limitations:

  • REA must be operated as part of One Stop

  • REA is intended to leverage One Stop Resources

  • Funded from UI Admin

    • Restricts how REA funds can be used

    • Can not fund E & T services – just referral to services

    • REA [Reemployment Eligibility Assessment (and its required elements)] are only activities fundable by REA


FY 2010 REA Grant Design

  • Initial REA – Assume 1 hour average

    • Within 2 weeks of REOS Create Date

  • Follow-up REA – Assume ½ hour

    • Minimally every 2 weeks for at least 2nd and 3rd REA Interview

    • Following 3rd REA Interview, may be modified to once a month based on individual progress/need

    • Following 4th REA, REA interview format can be changed to group activity rather than one on one based on individual progress/need


  • FY 2010 REA Grant Design

    Principles of Customer Service “Competitive Advantage” Model:
