Rapid Response is the program designed to deliver immediate services and assistance to workers who have been dislocated due to a company lay-off, downsizing, closure, or relocation. The process usually begins as soon as there is reason to believe employees will be losing jobs. Notification is typically received from the employer in compliance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN). Rapid Response is free of charge and is available to all business sectors. The typical process involves:

Notifying the employer of services available to workers
Information about the workforce and pending layoff is gathered
A plan is developed to provide information to the affected employees
Employees can set appointments to discuss available services
Employees are assisted in securing new employment

In Ohio, the Department of Job and Family Services acts as the "keeper" of its 20 local Boards’ funds.
