About this grant

This grant will support the Insight Center for Community Economic Development to expand support for sector initiatives in the mid-South and create upward mobility for low-wage, low-skilled workers. Sector employment development aims to help low-income workers find, keep, and advance in good-paying jobs, while also improving the mid-South regional economy. The grantee has been a leading provider of technical assistance to local practitioners, and the Mott Foundation has been a key funder for its work in the mid-South.
