The Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessments (RESEA) program is a grant program for states to assist individuals receiving unemployment insurance (UI) benefits. 

The funds connect participants with in-person assessments and reemployment services  through local American Job Centers. Activities include developing an individual reemployment plan, providing labor market information, identifying job skills and prospects, and reviewing claimant’s continued UI benefit eligibility.
