About this grant

As the temporary employment services sector increasingly serves as a point of entry to employment for disadvantaged jobseekers, several nonprofit workforce development organizations have established alternative staffing programs. These nonprofit services provide temporary employment opportunities while simultaneously addressing the clients’ barriers to employment.This grant will enable Pillsbury United Communities in Minneapolis, Minnesota to continue its alternative staffing program. Activities will include enhancing, diversifying and increasing the customer base; developing advertising that is focused on specific skills and specific job sectors; and hiring an additional full-time staffing coordinator to improve customer relations.
