About this grant
This grant provides partial support to the Insight Center for Community Economic Development to continue staffing a national trade association for sectoral employment practitioners entitled the National Network of Sector Partners. The network will continue to serve as the vehicle to coordinate the national dialogue about sector initiatives, and to advance a national sector strategy that is responsive to the concerns and priorities of its members. It will continue to develop a nonpartisan national collaborative, serve as an information clearinghouse for sector practitioners, implement a marketing plan to promote sector intervention strategies, and design and implement a sectoral employment public policy agenda.
