WASHINGTON, DC — Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter today announced that $558,591 would be sent to New Hampshire to provide employment-related services to dislocated workers affected by layoffs and closures from eight manufacturing companies around the state. The eight manufacturing companies include Amphenol Backplane Systems/Amphenol TCS; Cirtronics Corporation; Foss Manufacturing Company, LLC; Freudenberg-NOK; Goss International Americas, Inc.; Rehrig Pacific Company; Suflex, Inc.; and Thompson Center Arms. This funding is through the National Emergency Grant (NEG) from the Department of Labor and is made possible by the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
“Some of our local manufacturing companies have been forced to close shop or layoff workers because of our nation’s economic crisis,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “This American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, or “stimulus” funding, will provide important employment services to the workers affected by these layoffs.”
