Legislator Jesse Gooch on Friday announced the Niagara County Employment & Training “OneStop” Center located in the Trott Access Center will reopen on a limited basis beginning Monday, June 8. The center has been closed since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Niagara County is anxious to get important public services up and running again as quickly as possible, while staying within the guidelines of New York state,” said Gooch, chairman of the community services committee. “In my mind, there is nothing more important right now than helping people find jobs.”
Gooch said services available include:
Assistance will be by appointment-only, which can be made by calling 716-278-8108.
A facial covering will be required in order to enter the building and must be worn at all times.
Gooch stressed that, while Niagara County Employment and Training is happy to try to answer common unemployment insurance question and can direct people to the proper institutions that can provide assistance, only the New York State Department of Labor can access, process, or assist with unemployment insurance claims, debit card/direct deposits, or delay in payments.
