Covid-19 National Dislocated Worker Grant

City of St. Louis is hiring temporary healthcare workers

What is Covid-19 National Dislocated Worker Grant?

The St. Louis Agency on Training and Employment is accepting applications for temporary healthcare workers through the federal Covid-19 National Dislocated Worker Grant.

There's a huge demand for healthcare workers in the St. Louis area. At the same time, laid-off workers in our area are looking for new opportunities. The program is designed to help train more healthcare workers in our area and give laid-off workers a chance to get back to work.

Positions include community service workers, patient screeners, COVID-19 data entry workers, and contact tracers.

All participants will earn a paycheck and access to SLATE's employment and training services. These jobs pay $15 dollars an hour.

Who is Eligible?

Anyone who has:

  • Exhausted Unemployment Compensation benefits
  • The long-term unemployed (unemployed since June 2021) 
  • Those unable to go back into the field they were working in.


Participants must:

  • Pass the background check
  • Pass TB test
  • Be fully vaccinated.
