About this grant

This general purpose renewal grant is a part of a series of tie-off grants to ensure the successful legacy of the Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute. PHI is a 21-year-old advocacy and employment development organization that Mott has supported since it began. Impacting more than 120,000 workers through the grantee’s direct practice, many more are helped through its national policy research and advocacy efforts. This support will enable the grantee to strengthen its network of healthcare worker training programs. In addition, this grant will help test, measure, and articulate a set of strategies that focus on the employment needs of younger workers while allowing the grantee to disseminate program outcomes from its Cooperative Healthcare Network and promising practices that resulted in increasing workers’ productivity and benefits.
