About this grant

This renewal grant will provide funds for Public/Private Ventures to conduct the second year of the Alternative Staffing Demonstration. As the temporary employment services sector increasingly serves as a point of entry to employment for disadvantaged jobseekers, several nonprofit workforce development organizations have developed alternative staffing organizations. These nonprofit services provide temporary employment opportunities while simultaneously addressing the clients’ barriers to employment. Public/Private Ventures is partnering with the University of Massachusetts-Boston to conduct this documentation study of four Foundation-funded alternative staffing organizations. The study will provide data and information necessary to advance workforce development policy and practice around alternative staffing programs.
