About this grant

This grant will enable Jewish Vocational Services to retain employment and secure higher wages for participants in the Mott-funded random assignment sectoral employment impact study. Funding will be used to support the hiring of a case manager/employment specialist who will provide intensive case management services, retention counseling, and "next step" planning; serve as an intermediary between employee and supervisor; and provide reemployment services for those participants who lose their jobs.
