Back to Work Act of 2001 - Amends the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 to authorize appropriations to expand the National Emergency Grant program, for an 18-month period, to include grants to States to provide certain employment and training assistance and temporary health care coverage premium assistance for workers affected by major economic dislocations, such as plant closures, mass layoffs, or multiple layoffs, caused by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Expresses the sense of Congress that the Secretary of Labor should continue efforts to encourage Americans to take advantage of existing services under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 in order to assist workers during these times of unemployment.
