About this grant
This grant will continue support to the Interfaith Education Fund to replicate and expand the scale of its sectoral employment initiatives throughout the Southwest. The grantee’s sectoral employment initiatives define the skills required to succeed in targeted, hard-to-fill occupations with viable career ladders, and then recruit, train, and develop low-income adults so that they are qualified and ready to fill employers’ needs for skilled workers. Funding will enable the Interfaith Education Fund to replicate its work in Phoenix; Houston; Monroe, Louisiana; and Los Angeles; and increase the number being served by initiatives in San Antonio, El Paso, Austin, the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and Tucson.
